Book Description

In The Child and the Caribbean Imagination, twelve emerging and established scholars in the fields of literature, linguistics and education examine and interrogate the representations, roles and realities of Caribbean children. This multidisciplinary volume explores the experiential, discursive and fictive worlds of the child portrayed and treated variously as subject and object in the region’s oral and scribal literatures, formal classroom settings, and other socio-cultural contexts. Divided into four sections – Discourse and Representation, Unstable Identities, Language Development, and Pedagogy – The Child and the Caribbean Imagination offers breadth and depth in its contribution to much-needed academic scholarship aimed at impacting the lives of and paying homage to children in the Caribbean.
