Randi Gill-Sadler is assistant professor of English at Lafayette College. Her research interests include Black feminist theory, African American and Afro-Caribbean women's literature and U.S. Empire. Her forthcoming book manuscript, Diasporic Dissonance: Black Women's Writing, the Caribbean and U.S. Empire , asserts the significance of the Caribbean to the period known as the Black Woman's Literary Renaissance and argues that Black women writers used the Caribbean to explore Black diasporic antagonisms resulting from U.S. imperial exploits.
