The Caribbean

Liverpool University Press

Postcolonialism Across the Disciplines LUP

  • This book is the first collection to consistently adopt a world-ecological perspective on literary production
  • The volume's world-ecological approach allows for a revision of what it means to think eco-critically or environmentally about a text: if not only landscaping but labour regimes, not only forestry but financialization, not only farming but family structures are ecological projects, then what counts as, and how we do, 'ecological' criticism is radically transformed
  • The book is pan-Caribbean in scope, covering material from the Anglophone, Francophone, and Hispanophone Caribbean
  • The volume includes original material by two preeminent Caribbean writers, Wilson Harris and Oonya Kempadoo; it also includes contributions from those who have been actively involved in implementing environmental policies or advising on planning and development schemes
