Peter Hulme

Fellow  |  the Hutchins Center of African and African American Research, Harvard University  |  2018 - 2019

Peter Hulme 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’s published three single-authored books:

Colonial Encounters: Europe and the Native Caribbean, 1492‑1797 (1986), Remnants of Conquest: The Caribs and Their Visitors, 1877-1998 (2000), and Cuba’s Wild East: A Literary Geography of Oriente (2011).  The fourth, The Dinner at Gonfarone’s: Salomón de la Selva’s Pan-American Project in Nueva York, 1915-1919, will be published in spring 2019 by Liverpool University Press.

His project at the Hutchins Center for African and African American Research at Harvard is 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.
