Situating Caribbean Literature and Criticism in Multicultural and Postcolonial Studies is a pioneer in advancing the difficult but necessary argument of situating and centering Caribbean literature and criticism at the foundation of multicultural and postcolonial studies through an interdisciplinary, international, and intercultural manner, made possible by the author’s unique multicultural and transnational interest and experience. The Caribbean, more than any other region, has suffered from European imperialism – annihilation of the native population, piracy amongst the European powers, deracination and atrocities of the slave trade, and subsequent systems of indenture – but has received the least critical and international attention. Situating Caribbean Literature and Criticism in Multicultural and Postcolonial Studies argues that Caribbean criticism – shaped by the region’s socio-economic, political, and historical phenomena – has a more complex and significant marriage with postcolonial and multicultural studies than acknowledged by the international community. Caribbean scholars should not only seek to legitimize and publicize the marriage and its depth, but also expand the borders of its scholarship and protest its «disneyfication» and prostitution.
