Affect and Engagement Conference 

The Annual West Indian Literature Conference which is held in different Caribbean locations and Miami every year was held at the University of the West Indies St Augustine from Oct 4-7 2017.

The papers presented and the events hosted all spoke to what many may already view as self-evident: the fact literature encodes and evokes emotion – respect, awe, wonder, love, grief, rage, shame, guilt and so much more.
