The website of our sister Caribbean Literary Heritage project is now nearing completion. It includes a cartographic location register of Caribbean literary archives, and innovative new work, notably on recovering forgotten writers and creating a fuller literary history of the Anglophone Caribbean.
The website states that: “Our project is concerned with the Caribbean literary past and is particularly interested in neglected writers and writings at risk of being lost. We want to understand how fuller literary histories can be told and how their sources can be identified, preserved and made accessible. We hope that engaging with living writers across generations to raise awareness around the value of their manuscripts, correspondence and other papers, will help to safeguard future literary histories in the making.”
