About Njelle W. Hamilton

My scholarship engages with Caribbean narratology, especially the impact of orality, music, and trauma on the postcolonial novel form. My forthcoming monograph, "Phonographic Memories: Novel Recordings of Caribbean Exile," investigates the relationship between music and memory, particularly the ways that Caribbean popular music enables Caribbean exiles to record, retrieve, and replay personal and cultural memories. I am currently working on a second monograh on time and memory in Afrofuturistic Caribbean literature.
