Launch of newly published three volumes of Caribbean Literature in Transition

Announcing the launch of the three volumes of Caribbean Literature in Transition, 1800-2020 in Cambridge University Press’s expansive, ambitious series “In Transition”. The three volumes seek to change the conversation around Caribbean literature in the English-speaking world by emphasizing the multilingual Caribbean, by highlighting women and queer writers, by featuring visual art, music, and nontraditional venues for literary publishing like newspapers, pamphlets, and contemporary social media. All three volumes bring together new essays by a range of newer and established scholars, organized around 4 sections each: literary and generic transitions, cultural and political transitions, historical regional transitions and critical transitions. We hope “Caribbean literature” won’t look the same after you read Caribbean Literature in Transition and that the canvas will be stretched to allow far more literary figures, cultural networks and critical approaches to come into view. We hope you will enjoy the journey of reading these works and can join us for their online launch on June 7, 2021 (Volume 3), June 8, 2021 (Volume 2) and June 14, 2021 (Volume 1) at 5.30 pm UK time. Register for the respective virtual launches via: (June 7, Volume 3) (June 8, Volume 2) (June 14, Volume 1)
