The Society for Caribbean Studies invites submissions of abstracts of no more than 250 words for research papers on the Hispanic, Francophone, Dutch and Anglophone Caribbean and their diasporas for this annual international conference.Papers from all disciplines of Caribbean Studies are welcomed.While there is no particular theme for the conference, we are conscious that Preston is very near Nelson where CLR James spent a considerable time and that 2019 is the 40th anniversary of the Grenadian Revolution. Contributions on either of these themes would be particularly welcome but proposals can address any theme or topic focused on the Caribbean extended region. As we are based at IBAR, papers addressing relationships among the Caribbean, Northern Britain, and the Black Atlantic, would also be welcomed.
We welcome proposals for complete panels, which should consist of a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 4 presenters. Those selected for the conference will be invited to give a 20-minute presentation. Abstracts should be submitted along with a short bio of no more than 150 words by 15th of January 2019. Proposals received after the deadline will not be considered.
