FELLOW | HUTCHINS CENTER OF AFRICAN AND AFRICAN AMERICAN RESEARCH, HARVARD UNIVERSITY | 2018
Peter Hulme was a Stuart Hall Fellow at the Hutchins Center for African and African-American Research at Harvard University in 2018. Peter is Emeritus Professor of Literature at the University of Essex, where he taught for 40 years. Most of his research has focused on the Caribbean, both English- and Spanish-speaking, although he was also closely associated with the development of postcolonial studies. He has published four single-authored books:
Colonial Encounters: Europe and the Native Caribbean, 1492‑1797 (1986), Remnants of Conquest: The Caribs and Their Visitors, 1877-1998 (2000), Cuba’s Wild East: A Literary Geography of Oriente (2011) and The Dinner at Gonfarone’s: Salomón de la Selva’s Pan-American Project in Nueva York, 1915-1919 (2019).
At the Hutchins Center, he worked on an anthology and biography of the Jamaican writer and political activist, Wilfred Domingo, who was a key figure in both the Harlem Renaissance and the early struggle for Jamaican independence.
