Vickie Masséus is a PhD student in the English Department at St. John’s University.  She currently teaches at both St. John’s University and York College, CUNY.

Her research interests are in pre- and post-1950s Caribbean literature, modernist literature, and theories of social/racial/subject formations. She is currently examining ‘formal’ representations of historical trauma in 20th century Caribbean Literature and modernist literature in order to account for the specific ways in which the texts imagine, represent, and wrestle with some of the issues unique to the Caribbean, the Caribbean subject, and to the politics of the time.
