  • Letter to the Readers
    • Abstract: Dear Readers,Please receive this number of Callaloo as our print effort to share with you some of the moments of the two events we staged, during the fall of 2016, to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of Callaloo in the United States and in the United Kingdom. As you read through the various selected texts presented here, we hope you, too, will look backward and forward in joyous celebration and in hopeful meditation, as we did during our forward-looking engagements at New York University and Oxford University. These were, indeed, historic gatherings, marking the national and international importance of recording, documenting, and distributing in print the literary, cultural, and other intellectual and creative ...

  • This Love Saves Lives: Community and Callaloo at Oxford University
    • Abstract: On November 22, 2016, two weeks after Election Day, I returned to Oxford, England, for the first time in two decades since my year as a post-grad student. New York City felt like both safety and danger and I wanted a few days outside of everything Donald Trump, even if the escape was to one of the greatest sites of Western European truth-making, an operation that for centuries kept my kind at the bottom of every pyramid—even if we were the ones building them.There is always a behind-fortress-walls feeling when I visit Oxford. A literal one, of course, for so many colleges are small castles, but also the felt sense of having scaled walls created specifically to keep us out. My traveling friend Holly, a 5’2” woman of ...

  • Upon Callaloo’s Fortieth
    • Abstract: In 1976 Apple Computer was founded and Microsoft registered as a corporation. It is hard for us living now to imagine a time when we did not have access to personal computers that operate our lives through intimate machines that become extensions of our bodily appendages. We have, in other words, experienced a technological revolution in half the average lifespan of an American individual. Yet forty years is a drop of water in the ocean of geologic time. In 1976 America was celebrating its bicentennial in a rather dour mood after a presidential scandal and a presidential pardon that later that year would bring to the Oval Office a born-again peanut farmer, who confessed to having sinned in his heart in looking at ...

  • Callaloo Futures
    • Abstract: Individuals who have felt compelled to speak to the public or to record their thoughts and observations for posterity have invented language and media to communicate with others since time immemorial. From the pictographs of prehistoric Africa to the hieroglyphics of ancient Kemet and Mexico, to the stone tablets of Mesopotamia, writers have created ways of using the tools and symbols of writing to communicate with others and/ or memorialize their insights. For the past 300-plus years, the “little” magazine or literary journal has been the principle publishing organ and legitimizing medium used to provide a forum for aspiring and established writers in creative literary genres.The first literary journal of record ...

  • Callaloo and the Creative Writing Workshop
    • Abstract: Offering workshops across the Black Diaspora, the Callaloo Creative Writing Workshop is held at Brown University in Providence, RI, University of West Indies in Cave Hill, and the University of Oxford in England. It’s a transformative workshop like no other I have witnessed. Today we have Helen Elaine Lee, Vievee Francis, Ravi Howard, and Gregory Pardlo to speak on the workshops as the poetry and fiction workshop leaders. I suggest that each of these speakers will offer insight into their own pedagogy and role as workshop leaders, and testify to the importance of the workshop to the growing mission of Callaloo as a journal, the workshop as a life changing entry point for many new writers at any age into the field ...

  • Callaloo: A Forum for Academics and Creative Writers
    • Abstract: Brent Hayes Edwards was also a presenter on this panel. He provided Callaloo with an essay version of his remarks (see pgs. 67–71 in this issue).I am Margo Crawford and I am at Cornell University. I’m going to start today with a real focus on Charles Rowell’s interviews. When I think about the tremendous work that you have done, Charles Rowell, with Callaloo, I think we need an entire book or more than one book that puts together the interviews. The interviews set me in motion. The interviews made me understand the connection between the academic and the creative. Charles Rowell’s interviews break the boundaries between the creative and the critical.I want to start today with two moments (in two of his interviews) ... Read More

  • Forty More Observations
    • Abstract: At the panel discussion “Callaloo: A Forum for Academics and Creative Writers,” Brent Hayes Edwards presented these remarks.It was slightly embarrassing, I have to admit, to realize that the first time I celebrated an anniversary of Callaloo was all the way back in 2001, at the Modern Language Association convention in New Orleans, where I spoke on a panel organized for the 25th anniversary of the journal. I subsequently contributed an essay on the history of Callaloo to one of the special issues celebrating the 30th anniversary in 2006. So when Charles asked me to speak on this panel, my first reaction was, what more can I say' (I have to save something for the 50th!)One of the things I tried to highlight in the ... Read More

  • The Black Intellectual in the African Diaspora: The Example of Stuart Hall
    • Abstract: This conversation served as the keynote address for the opening of the Callaloo Conference at Oxford University celebrating the 40th Anniversary of Callaloo.I want to begin by thanking Dr. Charles Rowell for asking me to do this conversation with John Akomfrah. So following his request, that is what we are going to try and do up here. I am not going to give a talk on Stuart Hall. Instead I am going to talk to John about a particular documentary, The Stuart Hall Project.1 The title of the conversation that Charles asked me to do was called, “The Black Intellectual in the African Diaspora: The Example of Stuart Hall.”Let me begin by saying a few words about John Akomfrah. John is a noted filmmaker who has directed ... Read More

  • The Stuart Hall Project: Signifying Diaspora
    • Abstract: At the panel discussion “The Black Intellectual in the African Diaspora: The Example of Stuart Hall,” Joan Anim-Addo presented these remarks.John Akomfrah’s pioneering The Stuart Hall Project (2013) skillfully opens up for another generation the very important contribution that the black intellectual Stuart Hall (1932–2014) has made to contemporary critical discourse. It is certain that The Stuart Hall Project is of global importance, not the least for the crucial access that the documentary affords to Hall’s important legacy. In other words, I am emphasizing, firstly, that the film format will greatly assist the process allowing Hall’s legacy to be widely understood throughout the diaspora and this can only be ...

  • Stuart Hall in This Moment
    • Abstract: At the panel discussion “The Black Intellectual in the African Diaspora: The Example of Stuart Hall,” Hortense Spillers presented these remarks.I want to start by congratulating Charles Rowell for forty years of commitment to an idea and for providing us with numerous occasions that make Callaloo a celebration, that make it a living project rather than a museum of affects. It is a project that sometimes happens when we are lucky. It appears when we need it. As Kenneth Burke put it in one of his texts, it is one of those things that appeared when we needed a strategy, when we needed a word for something. Callaloo appears. We find ourselves in a circumstance, in a moment, in a crux that is not unlike that one in ... Read More

  • On Callaloo as a Forty-Year-Old Project
    • Abstract: These remarks were given at the opening of the Callaloo Conference at Oxford University celebrating the 40th Anniversary of Callaloo.Welcome, everyone. We want to begin today with three speakers who will discuss the significance of the occasion, and I am honored to be the first speaker. I’m Margo Crawford, professor of English at Cornell University. As I think about the significance of the occasion, the 40th anniversary of Callaloo, and these difficult times, I want to begin by thinking about Lucille Clifton and her words about Callaloo. Lucille Clifton wrote: “In this time in need of peace, healing, and intercultural understanding, Callaloo is clearly even more important to our spirit. Essential.” After the ... Read More

  • The History of Callaloo: An Interview with Charles Henry Rowell
    • Abstract: This interview was conducted on Thursday, November 24, 2016, at Pembroke College Auditorium as part of the Callaloo Conference at Oxford University celebrating the 40th Anniversary of Callaloo.I want to say that in addition to poetry, fiction, and cultural and literary studies, Callaloo • Art, the conferences, the creative writing workshops, the critical book series—I think I have named most or all of the current Callaloo enterprises—one of the things Callaloo has gifted us with is the art of the interview. If you look through back issues of Callaloo, you’ll find from the very beginning, extraordinary interviews with artists, filmmakers, and of course poets, fiction writers, and theorists from the African Diaspora ...

  • Callaloo Calling All Black People
    • Abstract: At the panel “The History of Callaloo: An Interview with Charles Henry Rowell,” Hermine Pinson presented these remarks.When Professor Hortense Spillers insightfully placed the courageous work of Charles Rowell and the Callaloo journal within the historical context of social movements on a global level—the Civil Rights Movement, the Black Power Movement, the Women’s Movement, the Chicano Movement, the Gay Movement, BREXIT, the extreme elements in the Alt right movement, and I would add the Black Lives Matter movement—I was reminded of the following quotation: “This is precisely the time when artists go to work. There is no time for despair, no place for self-pity, no need for silence, no room for fear. We speak, we ... Read More

  • Callaloo’s Legacy of Connection
    • Abstract: At the panel “The History of Callaloo: An Interview with Charles Henry Rowell,” Jonathan Howard presented these remarks.It is a real honor, and not a little humbling, to be a part of this conversation about the history of Callaloo. For me, one of the most striking aspects of Dr. Rowell’s remarks was the recurrence of the theme of “connection.” In the first instance, how the journal was created and developed with the idea of facilitating connections throughout the African Diaspora. But secondly how, in this way, the journal also carries forward a legacy of connection intrinsic to the very predicament of diaspora. Consider all of the encounters and exchanges precipitated by the diaspora’s many constitutional ... Read More

  • The Unknown Histories of Surinam
    • Abstract: In 2006 I published my second novel, When We’re Together, based on the history of my mother’s side of the family, starting in the late-nineteenth century when the Dutch first recruited workers in Indonesia as a substitute labor after the abolition of slavery. Not many people are familiar with this part of Dutch history. Not even the Dutch themselves, unfortunately. It turned out to be the first “big” novel about Javanese in Surinam and as such, my editor advised me to include an introduction. First I refused because I felt the Dutch should know their history. Then I realized what little people knew about Surinam as a whole, let alone how its eclectic and unique culture was shaped historically. I decided to ... Read More

  • from UNLESS THE FATHER
    • Abstract: Eric Lie is a 71-year-old taekwondo grandmaster in Paramaribo, Surinam. He is the highest decorated martial artist in his country and is considered a living legend by many. As a passionate hunter of wildlife and women alike, Mr. Lie fathered many children. One of them is writer Karin Amatmoekrim. In the memoir Unless the Father, Amatmoekrim tries to discover the man behind the myths, hoping to in the end find her father.I was eleven years old when my mother told me that my father’s name was Eric Lie and that he lived in Paramaribo. It had not so much been a notification, as well that it had been pure magic. My mother had closed her eyes when she unfolded the story, her hands plucking in the air, reaping from her ... Read More

  • You Can Lead a Horse to Water But You Can’t Make It Drink, and: His
           First Art Lesson, and: No Answer
    • Abstract: Memory—ol’ sawbones, nag and crowbait, ol’ gluepot—aren’t you ready for the knackers yet' The horses of Black Sunday on the Edmund Pettus, iron shoes striking the macadam. Hard sometimes to tell a screaming horse from a child screaming, a horse’s hooves from a baton striking a black boy’s back. Horses bite one another to determine their pecking order: nations also. Once, I clung to the neck of a spooked mare as she charged breakneck down a steep slope. Fear tore the reins from my hands. The horse would not be halted or swayed. What lay ahead of us—girl and mare—I did not want to drink: dark bitter water. But I held on. And where is the horse you’ve led, unaware, all these years' Stubborn horse! Is it the water that ...

  • Traveler, and: The Kingdom of Gravity, and: How a City Vanishes
    • Abstract: Barefoot I push a bicycle to a new village, entering with a song to hide this face’s signature. Through a glass darkly the heart stops dead weight. I am leaning by a fence afraid, not of shadows, they are nobody’s fault, but of time—the unseen persistence. The mob form a circle around me and I wonder do fish pay any mind to rain. I wish I could be two elements! At the intersection I am older by two minutes. Watchmen carved from camphor arrest a man with my face without ID and pull up his trousers, inked calluses show where army boots had been. Gunshots from the wood disrupt the hour. I shouldn’t have lied about the rifle-strap marks. They search for my tax card and jest Your graveyard the river can be seen from ... Read More

  • from JAMES LOVES RUTH
    • Abstract: “Absolutely not,” Ruth’s mother said, without conviction.No one else stood at the top of the stairs, where she and Ruth had met accidentally on their way between floors, but she wasn’t talking to Ruth. She was just saying it, as she did on order of thirty times a week now that Russell was dead.“Absolutely not,” she’d say in response to nothing, as she was folding laundry, or stacking china, or scrubbing a clot of tomato paste out of the sink. The first few times, she caught herself and blinked, and Ruth could tell that she’d been taken aback by the machinations of her own mind—she hadn’t meant to issue the two words audibly.But Cora soon lost shame. She started saying it seemingly at random, producing the phrase ... Read More

  • Double Consciousness in Black and White
    • Abstract: At the panel “Callaloo: Literary and Cultural Studies,” Robert Reid-Pharr presented these remarks.It will come as no surprise when I say that we are in a moment of great change and crisis. To state the matter with some level of bluntness and sobriety, the US presidency has been taken by a right-wing nativist movement given new focus and energy by the cult of personality surrounding a real estate mogul and reality television star who openly and actively promises the harassment of Mexican and Central American immigrants, the increased racial and ethnic profiling of Arabs and Muslims, the continuation of the aggressive and often deadly policing of African American, Afro-Caribbean, and Latino communities, the ...

  • Callaloo’s Black Textures: Connecting Spaces, Intersecting
           Contemporary Identity Formations
    • Abstract: At the panel “Callaloo: Literary and Cultural Studies,” Jean-Paul Rocchi presented these remarks.“No, no, no, dear Jean-Paul, you have mis-read what is being expected from you as a panelist.” Mis-reading, I thought. After all these years, I’m still doing it. The point is to fathom out and assess what Callaloo has done and possibly not done for forty years as a literary and cultural forum and journal, in critical theory too, and through its conferences as well. Forty years, I said to myself. I was only five forty years ago. How am I going to do that in such a short time—forty years of journal to dig. This is intellectual mining. What on earth have I mis-read in the call for papers: “Your contribution may relate to ... Read More

  • Callaloo and Creative Writing
    • Abstract: Hi and welcome to the panel Callaloo and Creative Writing. In 1997, Dr. Rowell formed the Callaloo Creative Writing Workshop. The workshop was first mounted at HBCUs like Morehouse, Spelman, Fisk, and Xavier, but soon moved to the journal’s then home of the University of Virginia before launching back into the world again far into our diaspora. The journal currently holds sessions in poetry and fiction at the University of the West Indies in Barbados, Brown University, and of course here at Oxford, attracting students from all over the world. I actually had a student from China last time. Dr. Rowell once called the launching of the journal itself a response to what he called arresting circumstances throughout the ... Read More

    • Abstract: Welcome to the last session of this conference and celebration of Callaloo’s 40th anniversary. The panel is called “The Future of Callaloo: A Round Table.” If you are looking at the program, I am not Fred D’Aguiar. Fred D’Aguiar couldn’t be here today, unfortunately. My name is Dagmawi Woubshet, and I will be your moderator. Also, Stephen Tuck asked me to apologize on his behalf. He had to administer an exam this morning, so he couldn’t join us. But what a privilege to moderate this last session with such distinguished panelists. I’m almost tempted to break into song to say happy birthday to Callaloo. [Laughter] But my pitch is so bad. I don’t want to damage your ears. [Laughter] But Robert Reid-Pharr has an ... Read More

    • Abstract: The closing of the 40th Anniversary Celebration included the presentation of the Lifetime Achievement Awards, closing remarks by Howard Dodson and Ben Okri, and musical performances by Carole Strong Thompson, Robert Reid, Hermine Pinson, and Harris Simon.I conducted an interview with Dr. Rowell at the Goethe-Institut in Addis Abba back in 2009, a year before the Callaloo Conference in Addis in 2010. I asked him, foolishly, “Dr. Rowell, how do you keep up with the literary trends of the day so that the journal keeps current'” Without skipping a beat, he replied, “We don’t have to keep up since we set the trend.” [Laughter] Foolish question, wise answer. Callaloo has been setting the standard for the past forty ... Read More

    • Abstract: Dear Friends and Colleagues,Thank you for assembling with us here at Oxford University to mark the Fortieth Anniversary of the quarterly literary and cultural journal Callaloo. Your presence, along with your participation in the scheduled program, is a precious gift to us at Callaloo, for they both strongly suggest your understanding, affirmation, and respect for what we do as intellectuals and artists, as culture workers.As our printed program suggests, this celebratory gathering—in its inclusiveness and format—is not unlike other annual conferences we have staged in U. S. American universities and in others abroad. In focus and content, however, this meeting here at Oxford this year differs from our other ... Read More
