Theme: Affirming Caribbean epistemologies and methodologies - culturally relevant approaches to pedagogy, research and leadership

The University of the West Indies, Jamaica in conjunction with The University of Trinidad and Tobago (School of Education) and the Auckland University of Technology (Pacific Media Centre) New Zealand will be hosting the second conference on Caribbean Research Methodologies on 15-16 October 2020, at the Faculty of Humanities and Education (UWI, Mona, Jamaica).

This conference follows on from a very successful inaugural conference held at The University of Trinidad and Tobago in September 2018. The conference will continue to create opportunities for academics to discuss and debate current research projects using Caribbean research methodologies, the challenges to developing and integrating the use of Caribbean research approaches in academia, and creating, managing and sustaining a space for Caribbean research methodologies.

This conference aims to bring together researchers, academics, service and field workers, and policy analysts from a range of disciplines and sectors to share knowledge, experiences, developments and learning on research approaches, guiding worldviews or contextual factors that are specific to the Caribbean region. The conference is intended to inspire critical thinking and discourse on shifting from a decolonizing framework to an affirming approach to developing, embracing and utilizing Caribbean ways of knowing.
