|Title||Negotiations of multiculturalism through mimicry and hybridity|
Multiculturalism, as the fundamental condition of Caribbean life, has been at the
centre of deliberations in the Indo-Caribbean literary text. Indeed, one can read the
entire continuum of positions on multiculturalisms through the very earliest
representations of Seepersad Naipaul and Samuel Selvon. Not only do these two
writers confront multiculturalism as ideology, they also address it as an intrinsic
socio-psychological conundrum in the quest for belonging in the Caribbean place.
This article explores the ways the two writers present these issues and discusses the
ongoing relevance of their representations in light of contemporary debates on
multiculturalism as official policy.
