*Deadline extended to March 12.*

*“Maroons and Indigenous Peoples: Towards a Sustainable Future”*

*June 20-24, 2018, Asafu Yard, Charles Town, Portland, Jamaica*

Celebrating its tenth anniversary, the Charles Town International Maroon
Conference welcomes papers and performances from scholars, artists, and
activists interested in exploring this year’s theme of sustainability. It
will explore the ways Maroons and other Indigenous Peoples have evolved
relationships with the environment that can provide resources for today’s
ecological challenges. Approaching “sustainability” in broad theoretical
and cultural terms, the conference will consider the roles indigenous
environments, peoples, histories, and cultures play in securing an
ecologically sustainable future.

Papers might consider, among other topics, indigenous environments and
climate change; economies of sustainable livelihoods; preservation of
cultural and historical traditions; or the aims and outcomes of
ecocriticism.

Presentations from all fields and genres are welcome, including
environmental and sustainability studies, ecocriticism, history, geography,
anthropology, ethnomusicology, education, literature, film, and the arts.
Participants will work closely with each other and the Maroons of Charles
Town to explore the relevance of indigenous knowledge to contemporary life
and the future of the environment.

The Charles Town International Maroon Conference takes place in the town’s
Asafu Yard, sacred space of Maroon dancing and drumming, surrounded by
Jamaica’s beautiful Blue Mountains. Offering a unique combination of
scholarly panels and cultural events, the conference brings Maroons and
Indigenous Peoples together with scholars and locals to examine the ways
their legacies have endured, creolized, and resonated in the Caribbean,
Africa, Canada, Australia, South America, Europe, the United Kingdom, and
the United States.

*Please send abstracts of 250-300 words by March 12, 2018 or inquiries
