*“Caribbean In/Securities and Creativity: Diasporic Dialogues” will take
place on Sunday, June 25, and Monday, June 26, 2017 at The Knowledge
Centre, British Library, London The deadline for proposals for proposals
has been extended to May 5, 2017. *

*Description*: Following our diaspora-focused conference in 2016, this
year’s two-day event will include a conference and an art and research
exhibition speaking to the theme of Caribbean and diasporic dialogues where
the role of creativity is highlighted in negotiating the in/securities
permeating such dialogues. The event is a result of collaboration between
the Centre for Caribbean and Diaspora Studies (CCDS) at Goldsmiths,
University of London, and Caribbean In/Securities: Creativity and
Negotiation in the Caribbean (CARISCC), an international research network
funded by the Leverhulme Trust and seeking to explore interactions between
the precariousness of insecure livelihoods and neighbourhoods, and the
negotiation of risk through creativity, in a Caribbean context. CARISCC
deploys the term ‘in/securities’ to foreground the interplay between
security and insecurity as negotiated and shaped by everyday interactions
and responses as much as by top-down processes and formal politics.

The conference organisers welcome papers addressing Caribbean and diaspora
in/securities literally, culturally and ontologically and / or in
comparison relative to the wider diaspora. Cross-disciplinary explorations
identified within our various practices are welcome, as well as
perspectives that address, open up and/or complicate a nuanced
understanding of Caribbean in/securities, tensions and responses in terms
of creative expression in the region, across the diaspora, and within a
global and profoundly uneven world.

Suggestions for Proposals (papers and panels) include but are not limited
to the following:

   - in/security and mobility: the Caribbean outside/within the metropolis
   - (re)signifying in/security in Caribbean and diasporic arts practices
   - vulnerability, resilience, globality: a creolised diasporic
   imaginary/reality
   - transnational/transcultural literary production as in/securities
   - singing in/security: reconsidering dance, song and musical forms
   - enslavement/emancipation in/securities and expression: history/poetics
   - politics and in/securities: configurations of power/powerlessness in
   intercultural encounters and discourses

Performance artists are encouraged to submit proposals. Abstracts from
postgraduates and early career researchers are very welcome. Abstracts (no
more than 300 words for papers of 20 minutes maximum) should be emailed to:
caribbean at gold.ac.uk

Please include your full name, institutional affiliation, title, phone
number and email address with your proposal. Be sure to include a proposed
title and a short bio. We encourage panel proposals, which should include a
detailed abstract for each paper, a designated chair, and a short statement
explaining why the submissions should be considered as a panel rather than
as individual presentations. Do bear in mind that all papers must represent
previously unpublished work.

Deadline for Abstracts and Panel Proposals: 5 May 2017.

Notification of acceptance: 12 May 2017.
