Call for Papers: International Conference on “Cultural Diversity in the Caribbean”

The Center for Caribbean Studies at Casa de las Américas convenes the international colloquium “Cultural Diversity in the Caribbean,” co-sponsored by the UNESCO’s Regional Office of Culture for Latin America and the Caribbean, to be held May 16-20, 2011, in Havana, Cuba.

In its third year, the conference promotes Caribbean Studies from a multidisciplinary perspective to address the region’s cultural diversity through the exploration of essential topics in the past and present, for a better understanding of the future of Caribbean arts and culture.

The unifying subject areas this year are nature, environment and climate change; inter-Caribbean migrations and Afro-American descendants; studying the Caribbean beyond the Caribbean; and the ‘son,’ a Caribbean cultural womb.

Interested parties may register as speakers or participants. Registration fee will be 50.00 CUC (US$60) for foreign speakers and participants. Presenters must submit proposals before March 31, 2010. Letters of approval will be sent out in April.  Both speakers and participants should send the following information via email to seccaribe@casa.cult.cu.

Please provide: full name; country; place of study or work; identity number; and passport number. Please specify your wish to enroll in the “Cultural Diversity in the Caribbean” Colloquium as a speaker or participant. Speakers must provide the paper title, abstract of 200 words, and a 100-word CV.

    1. For more information, you may see the “Premio y eventos” section at http://www.casadelasamericas.com/. In my experience with conferences hosted by Casa, papers may be submitted in Spanish, English, French, etc. They have very good simultaneous translation available at their major conferences. But you should double check by writing to seccaribe@casa.cult.cu. [I have added the links to the post. Thank you.] IR
