Editorial Reviews

Review

Exhibiting Slavery makes a comprehensive and convincingly argued linkage between recent developments in the museum culture of the transatlantic slave trade and the plethora of literary production on slavery. Halloran's is the best book to date on this important topic.

(Natasha Barnes, author of Cultural Conundrums: Race, Gender, Nation and the Making of Caribbean Cultural Politics)

In her intriguing book Exhibiting Slavery, Vivian Nun Halloran argues that postmodernity — the playful, self-referential, subversively untraditional tradition, more often invoked than understood — offers Caribbean writers a unique opportunity to move among slavery’s ghosts, and to reframe cultural artifacts in ways that allow us, finally, to move beyond the surfaces of history.... If you are interested in learning about how the slave experience has shaped Caribbean literature, this is an excellent introduction to the ways that contemporary writers have grappled with this region’s dark past.

(Brendan de Caires The Caribbean Review of Books)
