Caribbean Literature loses a Champion

“The University of the West Indies was thrown into mourning yesterday*, following the death of Dr Giselle Rampaul, a lecturer in Literatures in English in the Faculty of Humanities.

Rampaul, 40, died suddenly on Thursday while warded at the West Shore Medical Private Hospital in West Moorings. Rampaul, of Couva, passed away at about 2.30 pm.

Relatives were said to be very distraught over her passing and expressed utter shock, especially given the fact that Rampaul was not suffering from any ailment.

She has published work on the intersections between British and Caribbean literature; and was working on a monograph on Shakespeare in the Caribbean. She was also the founder and producer of The Spaces between Words: Conversations with Writers podcast series.”
