The 7th Caribbean Reasonings conference hosted by the Centre for Caribbean Thought (CCT) UWI, Mona-Jamaica, in association with Africana Studies at Brown University, and the Institute of Caribbean Studies at the University of Puerto Rico-Rio Piedras has extended its deadline to March 1, 2010.
“Freedom and Power in the Caribbean: The Work of Gordon K. Lewis” will be held at University of the West Indies-Mona in Jamaica on June 3-5, 2010.
Professor Gordon K. Lewis, (1919 – 1991) taught for many years at the University of Puerto Rico and wrote path-breaking books on the Caribbean’s history, politics and intellectual development. Texts such as Puerto Rico: Freedom and Power in the Caribbean (1963), The Growth of the Modern West Indies (1968), and Main Currents in Caribbean Thought: the historical evolution of Caribbean society in its ideological aspects (1983), exemplify the breadth of his interests as well as the range and quality of his output.

Abstracts should be sent as a Word attachment by March 1 to Beverley Sutherland Lewis at email@example.com
