Edouard Glissant: Controversy surrounding the criticism of an icon of Caribbean thought

A debate has emerged between Kathleen Gyssels (University of Antwerp) and Loïc Céry (Institut du Tout-Monde) surrounding the critical reception of Edouard Glissant’s theoretical work. In her article “Un long compagnonnage: Glissant & Schwarz-Bart face à la ‘diaspora’” (Revue des sciences humaines, January/February 2013) Gyssels had put forth the thesis that Glissant’s works at times inadvertently risk falling into the trap of binarism, e.g. when juxtaposing the Caribbean Sea and the Mediterranean.
