The Department of Literary, Cultural and Communication Studies at the University of the West Indies-St. Augustine hosts the Inaugural Conference on Human Communication Studies: Celebrating the Caribbean in Communication, Culture and Community 2013. The conference will be held at the UWI-St. Augustine Campus in Trinidad from September 26 to 27, 2013.
Description: Human communication studies research in the Caribbean has steadily been evolving, and these developments in the Caribbean reflect, in part, the international and national trends in the burgeoning discipline of human communication which is home to more than two dozen sub-fields. As we celebrate the Caribbean in communication, culture and community, it seems appropriate to recognize, locate, share and celebrate what the Caribbean has contributed to human communication studies and what the world has contributed to Caribbean human communication studies in the works of Stuart Hall, Aggrey Brown, and others.
All academic faculty, graduate and undergraduate researchers are invited and encouraged to participate at this conference in September 2013.
[Note: the deadline for abstracts is over; we are only announcing this as a forthcoming event.]
