XI International Seminar on Caribbean Studies in Cartagena

carta

The XI International Seminar on Caribbean Studies [Seminario internacional de estudios del Caribe], organized around the theme of “History, Culture and Regional Integration in the Caribbean,” will be held from July 29 to August 2, 2013, at the University of Cartagena (Claustro de San Agustín) in Cartagena de Indias, Colombia.

Description: This academic event, which has been held every two years for the past twenty years, has become the most important event on Caribbean issues in Colombia. The seminar seeks to address the need for the nation to rebuild its belonging as well as its historical, social, political, economic and cultural ties with the Caribbean Sea. The great achievement of this seminar was to create a network of scholars to study the formation of links between the peoples of the Caribbean and Caribbean identity construction, in addition to the structural processes that have configured the region.

The main objectives are to reflect on the historical and cultural construction of the Caribbean and its regional integration processes; to generate a forum for analysis and discussion of the history that has connected Caribbean peoples, who are now facing an international crisis with high and rising social, cultural and environmental costs; to analyze the relationship of integration and international cooperation among Caribbean States; and to discuss the role of social movements and the challenges of collective action and the State in responding to the problems mentioned above.

  1. YA ERA TIEMPO QUE ALGO ASI APARECIERA EN EL INTERNET ACERCA DEL AFRO-COLOMBIANISMO!! AHORA LO QUE SE NECESITA ES QUE INCLUYA LA AFRO DESCENDENCIA COLOMBIANA EN LOS TRABAJOS CULTURALES Y POLITICOS DEL PAIS, LAS BIOGRAFIAS Y LA DOCUMENTACION DE LA NACION DE COLOMBIA QUE APARECEN EN LA PRENSA TANTO A NIVEL DE CONTINENTE, COMO DE REGION (CARIBEÑA) Y, SOBRETODO, INTERNACIONAL SIEMPRE OMITEN LA SEMBLANZA DE LOS GRUPOS ETNICOS AFRO DESCENDIENTES COLOMBIANOS. PERO LAS EXCUSAS NUNCA ACABAN. LO QUE SE NECESITA ES QUE EL PUEBLO COLOMBIANO Y SOBRE TODO LOS QUE ESTAN EL EL PODER EN COLOMBIA LEGISLEN PARA QUE SE GARANTICE LA JUSTA PARTICIPACION DE LOS “NEGROS COLOMBIANOS” EN LA VIDA DE LA NACION DE QUE FORMAN PARTE.
    SOMOS “PAISAS” COMO CUALQUIERA OTROS Y SI NO QUIEREN SER PAISAS ENTONCES LEGITIMOS COLOMBIANOS PERO CON LOS MISMOS DERECHOS DE LOS DEMAS CO-CUTANEOS EN LA GLORIOSA NACION COLOMBIANA.
