If you have not yet submitted your abstract or panel proposal for the 38th Annual Conference of the Caribbean Studies Association (CSA), there is still time. CSA Conference Program Chair Maggie Shrimpton (Universidad Autónoma de Yucatán, México) writes that the Call for Submissions deadline for the conference has been extended to January 6, 2013. The conference will take place at the Grenada Grand Beach Resort in Grand Anse, Grenada on June 3-7, 2013.
Description: Organized around the theme ‘Caribbean Spaces and Institutions: Contesting Paradigms of “Development” in the 21st Century,’ the 38th Annual Conference of the CSA invites scholars, activists, practitioners, allied professionals and commentators to interrogate the notion of “development” in as holistic a manner as possible. The CSA prides itself as a premier community of scholars, activists and practitioners whose experiential knowledge and critical social engagements offer novel insights in shaping and re-shaping the evolution of “development” as a concept and its value as a manifestation of well-being. The setting of Grenada provides a worthy Caribbean space for the CSA to seriously confront the pathways and processes that have shaped the “development” agenda.
