*The CARISCC Research Network invites submissions of abstracts of up to 300
words for research papers addressing issues of in/security and creativity,
to be presented at the forthcoming CARISCC Postgraduate Conference,
University of the West Indies-Mona, Jamaica, on Monday 15 January 2018*. *The
deadline for submitting abstracts and 150-word biographies (as well as
bursary applications) is* *Friday 24 November 2017*.

Many scholars have highlighted the creative practices that Caribbean people
routinely deploy in the face of insecurity caused by poverty, inequality,
environmental challenges and violence. Although questions of Caribbean
security and insecurity are often addressed as matters of governmental or
military concern, this conference seeks to explore reconceptualisations of
security and insecurity (in/security) through creativity.

We are interested in creativity in a broad sense, including artistic
practices such as literature, film, theatre, dance, music and visual arts,
but also the creative ways in which people live their lives (e.g. balance
budgets, interpret policy, and perform politics). In examining the links
between precariousness and creativity, this CARISCC conference aims to
bring together new approaches to the study of global security.

Therefore, CARISCC welcomes research papers and presentations which explore
how in/security, as experienced and negotiated by ordinary people, informs
creative and cultural practices in the Caribbean region.

Abstracts of 200-300 words should be emailed to the conference convener Dr
Patricia Noxolo (p.e.p.noxolo at bham.ac.uk), using the subject heading
“CARISCC Postgraduate Conference.” Please include your university
affiliation details, your preferred email address and a short biography of
up to 150 words. It is anticipated that each presentation/research paper
will last 10-15 minutes; and updated programme details will be released
prior to the date of the conference to confirm presentation requirements
and duration.

Further details about this conference invitation, the provisional
programme, suggested sub-themes, and additional information about applying
for travel bursaries are available online via the CARISCC website:
