*Goldsmiths, University of London, Centre for Caribbean & Diaspora Studies
(CCDS) Conference, 27-8 June, 2016*

*Caribbean and Diasporic Dialogues in the University*

The conference aims to challenge the limited visibility of Caribbean and
Diaspora Studies in many higher education institutions and to interrogate
the ways in which the precarious presence/ absence of indigenised black
thought, currently being highlighted primarily through protest within, for
example, higher education culture in countries like the UK, might be
transformed. The theme of the conference – ‘Caribbean and Diasporic
Dialogues in the University’ – seeks to foster and develop multi- and
interdisciplinary conversations exploring critical, theoretical, historical
and creative questions in a number of related fields that together
contribute to Caribbean and Diaspora Studies.

We are especially interested to move beyond the construct of area studies
‘out there’ and to heighten the transglobal, transnational and postcolonial
present with which Caribbean and diasporic research and arts practices are
already richly conversant. We aim to engage a wide audience of scholars and
practitioners researching these areas from within a range of disciplinary
fields and contexts.

To present a paper: please send a proposed title and abstract (of no more
than 300 words) with a short CV to the conference organizing committee at
