Call For Papers (CFP): A Postgraduate Caribbean Studies Conference
In association with the University of Warwick, the University of Nottingham, and the Society for Caribbean Studies,
The “Postgraduate Caribbean Network” presents
A Postgraduate Caribbean Studies Conference
3 June 2015
The University of Warwick
We welcome abstracts from postgraduates whose research concerns any aspect of the Caribbean and its diasporas, at various stages of their research for this one-day interdisciplinary conference to be held at the University of Warwick. We intend this to be an opportunity for delegates to share and receive feedback on their work in a friendly and informal setting. We will frame and arrange panels once we receive abstracts.
In addition to paper panel discussions, the conference intends to offer:
- A keynote address on recent trends in Caribbean Studies (TBA)
- A welcome address from the Society of Caribbean Studies’ chair Pat Noxolo
- A workshop addressing key issues encountered in Caribbean research
- Refreshments, a lunch and a drinks reception to round off the day
This event is in the spirit of previous “Postgraduate Caribbean Network” events and it is free to attend. As Caribbean postgraduates are often dispersed across departments and universities, this event hopes to offer delegates an opportunity to meet with others who share their interests and discuss their work, fostering ties that will endure throughout their studies.

Please send abstracts of 200-300 words to firstname.lastname@example.org for papers of 10-15 minutes duration by 29th March 2015 with the subject heading "Caribbean Studies Conference". Please include your university affiliation, your preferred email address and a short bio of up to 150 words.
We look forward to hearing from you,
Kimberley Thomas (PhD candidate of Warwick University) and Dana Selassie (PhD candidate Nottingham University)
