This book is concerned with the development of ‘Francophone’ Caribbean studies and the relations between the French-speaking Caribbean, including Haiti, and the American South, including Louisiana. It focuses on the notion of ‘Creoleness’, a term indicative of contact between European and African people and cultures in the Americas. The book deals primarily with the idea of Creole culture and Creole identity found in a wide range of texts.
