This essay serves as an introduction to a suite of essays exploring the significance and resonance of Charles V. Carnegie’s Postnationalism Prefigured (2002). The occasion for these reflections is the twentieth anniversary of the publication of the book. The authors’ discussion examines the place of Carnegie’s work in relation to questions of Caribbean intellectual genealogies. They locate him multiply: as a student of the 1960s generation and as a scholar in his own right among a cohort of critics writing at the turn of the century. They also examine and reflect on the ongoing importance of Carnegie’s scholarship.
