The 14th International Conference on Caribbean Literature will be held in Willemstad, Curacao

The 14th International Conference on Caribbean Literature will be held in Willemstad, Curacao, on November 5-7, 2014.

The International Conference on Caribbean Literature (ICCL) was founded in July,1997, by Dr. Melvin B. Rahming (former Hugh M. Gloster Professor of English and former Chair of the Department of English at Morehouse College, Atlanta, Georgia) and Dr. Jorge Roman-Lagunas (Former Director of the Center for International Studies at Purdue University Calumet, Hammond, Indiana) for the purpose of promoting global understanding of Caribbean culture.

The first twelve ICCL events were held in Nassau, Bahamas (1998); in Paget, Bermuda (1999); in Ponce, Puerto Rico (2000); in Trois Illet, Martinique (2001); in Freeport, Bahamas: (2003); in St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands (2004); in Cartagena, Colombia (2005),  in Port-Au-prince, Haiti (2006), in Castries, St. Lucia (2007),  in Buea, Cameroon (2008), in Port of Spain, Trinidad (2010), and in Havana, Cuba (2011). Each conference is sponsored jointly by Morehouse College and Purdue University Calumet and is usually hosted by a Caribbean institution of higher learning. ICCL has averaged roughly 125 participants per conference, and these participants have come from colleges and universities around the globe.

Nature of The International Conference on Caribbean Literature

I.C.C.L. is unique. It is the only Caribbean literary forum that aims to unite, on an annual basis and in a Caribbean setting, writers and critics for concurrent presentations in the three most prominent fields of Caribbean literature — English, French and Spanish. It is also the only conference on Caribbean literature that involves the host country in all planning stages of its annual congresses.

Furthermore, although each I.C.C.L. event spotlights a few internationally acclaimed Caribbean writers and scholars — the list of keynote speakers have included The Honorable Rex Nettleford, Kenneth Ramchand, Antonio Benitez-Rojo, Jan Carew, Maryse Conde, Carol marsh-Lockhart, Brenda Flanagan, Edgardo Rodriguez-Julia, Sylvia Winter, Ian Strachan, Raphael Confiant and Earl Lovelace — some attempt is also made to expose lesser-known writers of the host country to the international audience. Finally, I.C.C.L. provides another forum for the host country to showcase its visual and performance art.

Goals of The International Conference on Caribbean Literature

  1. To provide an additional forum for the global discussion of Caribbean literature (by writers, scholars, and critics from academic institutions in the Caribbean, Europe, North and South America, Central America, Canada, Asia, and Africa) as a way of promoting global understanding of Caribbean culture;
  2. To add to the existing body of criticism on Caribbean literature;
  3. To involve Caribbean nations in the discussion and promotion of their own and each other’s literature and culture;
  4. To begin or continue academic linkages between Morehouse College, Purdue University Calumet and the various tertiary level institutions in the Caribbean; and
  5. To involve Caribbean tertiary institutions as hosts and planners for each conference
