Fresh perspectives on Papiamentu and the literatures and cultures of the ABC-Islands
Edited by Nicholas Faraclas, Ronald Severing, Christa Weijer, Liesbeth Echteld.
Most of the contributions to this volume are updated versions of papers presented at the Eastern Caribbean Islands Cultures Conference (ECICC) held on the island of Curaçao in 2008. The ECICC 2008 call for papers invited researchers to present results of their work with the aim of eventually publishing a new volume on the languages, literatures, and cultures of the Dutch Leeward Islands Aruba, Bonaire, and Curaçao, or the so-called ‘ABC Islands’. The participants responded enthusiastically to the call and the results are presented here in volume 1 of the proceedings of the conference. A small number of
articles are local contributions which were submitted on invitation by the editors after conference. This book, Leeward voices: Fresh perspectives on Papiamentu and the literatures and cultures of the ABC Islands, offers an exciting and diverse array of new points of view on language and culture in the ABC Islands.
