Researching the Caribbean: A Research Student Workshop

Amelia Pelaez - Cuba

Call for Papers

The Caribbean Postgraduate Network invites abstracts of 250 words from Postgraduate students in Caribbean Studies for their annual workshop, taking place at the Institute for the the Americas, University College London, on Friday 1st November 2013.

Postgraduate students located in discipline-based departments often find they are the sole scholar within their department working on the Caribbean. The Caribbean Postgraduate Network seeks to bring together students who share a common interest in the Caribbean to share their work with regional specialists in a friendly and informal setting. The workshop will feature student presentations on aspects of their work, with responses by convenors and questions encouraged from other participants.

We welcome submissions from postgraduate students across disciplines who are researching any aspect of the wider Caribbean and its diasporas. We encourage proposals from students at various stages within their postgraduate research. Participants will be invited to give a 20-minute presentation.

Abstracts should be submitted by Friday 13th September to Rachel Thompson at with the subject heading ‘Caribbean Postgraduate Network’. Please include your university affiliation
