*CALL FOR PAPERS: “Circum-Caribbean Poetics”*

Professor Jana Braziel (jana.braziel at uc.edu) and Nicasio Urbina (
nicasio.urbina at uc.edu) are issuing a “Call for Papers” for a special issue
of *Cincinnati Romance Review* (slated for publication in spring 2016)
devoted to the theme of Circum-Caribbean Poetics.

Submissions Due September 10, 2015.

Professor Jana Braziel and Nicasio Urbina are writing to propose a special
issue of*Cincinnati Romance Review* (slated for publication in spring 2016)
devoted to the theme of Circum-Caribbean Poetics. The special issue will
foreground poetry and literary prose written by Afro-Caribbean writers from
the anglophone, francophone, and hispanophone countries in the Caribbean
archipelago, and by Afro-Central American writers from Nicaragua, Belize,
Honduras, Costa Rica, Guatemala, and Panamá.  The special issue will
include scholarly and critical essays as well as poems, short stories, and
literary nonfiction. The purpose of the special issue is to contextualize
Circum-Caribbean and Central American poetics through the historical lenses
of slavery, migration, independence, ethnicity and racial difference,
polylinguistic play, and contemporary transcultural exchanges in the
archipelago and circum-sea region. The special issue will open new
spaces—literary, diasporic, and circum-regional—for cross-fertilization in
the Americas: it will uniquely examine the multifarious literatures of the
Caribbean islands and the Central American countries in comparative
relationship (an exercise that is novel); and it will comparatively examine
the literatures and poetics of African diasporic writers from across the
Caribbean sea, from archipelagic and continental countries in the region.
