*Call for papers*
*Study Day: “The Expression of Marronnage in the English and
French-speaking Caribbean in the 20th and 21st Centuries”*
Tuesday, March 27, 2018
Schoelcher, Martinique

This Study Day is an invitation to consider the existence of contemporary
marronnage in the English and French-speaking Caribbean. What is left of
marronnage in the 20th and 21st centuries? And what are its connections to
resistance during slavery? Issues that participants may address include:

- Marronnage and literary-artistic aesthetics
- Marronnage and Caribbean culture
- Marronnage and social transformation
- Forms of emergence of maroons in literature
- Maroon writing and aesthetics
- Marronnage, body and representation
- Marronnage and maroon communities

The Study Day is organized by Alexandra Roch, Professor of Anglophone
Studies at the University of the Antilles, Schoelcher campus, and author of
Le Marronnage dans la littérature caribéenne (Paris: L’Harmattan, 2017).

Proposals of approximately 350 words, in English or French, should be
accompanied by a brief bibliography, should mention one’s institutional
affiliation, and should be emailed to alexandraroch at yahoo.fr before January
5, 2018.

Participation in the Study Day may take place via video conference (Skype).
A publication of the proceedings of the Study Day is foreseen after
selection of the best presentations.
