Caribbean Crossings

Tribute to Maryse Condé


Celebrated Guadeloupean author Maryse Condé has left us on 2 April 2024 at the age of 90. A strong contender for the Nobel Prize in Literature, she was best known for her novel Segu, which deals with the African diaspora that resulted from slavery and colonialism in the Caribbean. Mirroring a conference on Maryse Condé at Goldsmiths University, this discussion will delve into the intricacies of mixed identities in the Caribbean. Renowned writers Jean D'Amérique (Haiti), Estelle-Sarah Bulle (Guadeloupe), and Jason Allen-Paisant (Jamaica) will talk about the Caribbean’s influence on their work with Prof. Clare Finburgh Delijani (Goldsmiths University), engaging with questions of migration, heritage, justice, and creativity.
