Welcome

Caribbean and Diasporic Dialogues in the University

Hosted by the Centre for Caribbean and Diaspora Studies, Department of English and Comparative Literature from Monday 27 June until Wednesday 29 June 2016.

The conference challenged the limited visibility of Caribbean and Diaspora Studies in many higher education institutions and interrogated the ways in which the precarious presence/ absence of indigenised black thought, currently being highlighted primarily through protest within, for example, higher education culture in countries like the UK, might be transformed. The theme of the conference – ‘Caribbean and Diasporic Dialogues in the University’ – fostered and developed multi- and interdisciplinary conversations exploring critical, theoretical, historical and creative questions in a number of related fields that together contribute to Caribbean and Diaspora Studies.
