The deadline for sending abstracts for the 44th Annual Conference of the Caribbean Studies Association (CSA) has been extended to January 31, 2019. Organized around the theme “The Caribbean in Times of Tempest: Ethnicities, Territorial Resistances and Epistemic Poetics,” the congress will take place on June 3-7, 2019, in Santa Marta, Colombia. [All proposals should be sent via the CSA website (not email).]
Description: As if amidst a great marine storm, the Caribbean endures times of Tempest. We seem to be the target of ever-growing devastating hurricanes from the south; sacking and pillage from the extractivism of the global north; measures of austerity derived from the neoliberal agenda of the financial “north”; natural and social disasters; drug dealing; and ongoing forms of human trafficking, slavery and feminicide. Expressions of racism, patriarchy, homophobia and xenophobia worsen. In response to such times of Tempest, it is necessary to give visibility to the diversity of the Caribbean world, its ways to imagine liberation; and to think and understand its life experiences from its own narratives and arguments. In addition, to analyze and apprehend the multiple resistances that take place at the local level against policies of plunder and death. Following our Caribbean tradition, the Tempest invites us to poeticize the future, producing critical theories that allow us to think of models of society that give priority to life.
