*A post by Peter Jordens.*

Conference / Symposium: “Memory, Migration, and Decolonisation in the
Caribbean and Beyond, 1804 to the Present,” May 23–24, 2017, Woburn Suite,
Room G22/26, Ground Floor, Senate House; Institute of Latin American
Studies (ILAS), School of Advanced Studies, University of London (Malet
Street, London).

ILAS invites papers that interrogate the intersections between memory,
migration, and decolonisation across the Caribbean and its diasporas. The
conference seeks to explore how ideas about decolonisation have resonated
in the Caribbean, the Americas, and Europe. It takes Haitian independence
(1804) as a thinking point for debates surrounding concepts of
independence, colonialisms, and freedoms. The organizers welcome papers
that explore contemporary practices of neo-colonialism and resistances to
them as well as issues of formal ‘decolonisation’. The conference will
develop themes of decolonisation by moving beyond any set discipline; the
organizers are particularly interested to hear proposals from artists,
curators, musicians and community activists, as well as scholars. As part
of an ongoing oral history project, this conference will feature a
community-led public engagement activity that focuses on the lived
experiences of decolonisation and migration amongst members of Britain’s
Caribbean diaspora.

Themes of interest include (but are not limited to):

   - Memories and experiences of migration, empire, and (de)colonisation
   - (Neo)colonialism in the contemporary Caribbean and beyond
   - The development of national consciousness
   - Caribbean literature
   - Theorising decolonisation
   - Visions of a post-colonial future.

Please send abstracts of no more than 250 words, by Friday March 17,
2017 to decolconference at gmail.com.

Keynote Speaker: Prof. Matthew Smith (University of the West Indies, Mona).

Guest Speakers: Prof. Tina K. Ramnarine (Royal Holloway, University of
