Locating Guyane

Sarah Wood and Catriona MacLeod








Locating Guyane, Sarah Wood and Catriona MacLeod • Liverpool University Press • ISBN 9781786941114 • 224 pages • 2018 • £80.00


  • The first book to examine Guyane from multiple perspectives: combines scholarship by leading experts and new voices in history, anthropology, sociology, linguistics, and comparative literary and cultural studies.
  • Takes a truly multilingual and transnational approach, including research conducted in and on French, Portuguese, English, Saamaka, Aluku and Palikur languages, amongst others.
  • Crucially updates understandings of a place that is rapidly changing but remains much-misunderstood and largely ignored.

This collection of essays explores historical and conceptual locations of Guyane, as a relational space characterised by dynamics of interaction and conflict. Does Guyane have, or has it had, its own place in the world, or is it a borderland which can only make sense in relation to elsewhere?


Catriona MacLeod is Lecturer in French Studies at the University of London Institute in Paris (ULIP). Sarah Wood is Visiting Assistant Professor of French and Francophone Studies at the University of Connecticut.
