Dear colleagues,

Please see below extended call for papers:
DEADLINE EXTENDED - new deadline: 21st May 2018
Call for Papers
4th Annual Postgraduate Conference of the Society for Caribbean Studies
Venue: The National Archives, Bessant Drive, Richmond TW9 4DU
Room: The Learning Space

The Society for Caribbean Studies Postgraduate Caribbean Network invites submissions of abstracts of not more than 250 words for research papers on the Hispanic, Francophone, Dutch and Anglophone Caribbean and their diasporas for its annual postgraduate conference. We welcome abstracts from postgraduates at various stages of their research, whose research concerns any aspect of Caribbean Studies. We also welcome proposals for complete panels, which should consist of a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 4 presenters. Those selected for the conference will be invited to give a short presentation. Abstracts should be submitted along with a bio of not more than 150 words by 30th April 2018. Proposals received after the deadline will not be considered.

We intend this to be an opportunity for delegates to share and receive feedback on their work in a friendly and informal setting.

In addition to paper panels, the conference intends to offer:


·      A keynote address (TBA)

·      A panel of experts in Caribbean studies sharing tips and personal experiences of building an academic career and/or a career in the heritage sector

·      An opportunity to learn more about The National Archives and explore their collections and reading rooms

·      Coffee/tea/light refreshments (please note that lunch will not be provided but a wide selection of hot meals, sandwiches and salads are available from The National Archives’ canteen.)

This event is free to attend. It has been thought out in the spirit of previous years’ postgraduate conferences. As Caribbean postgraduates are often dispersed across departments and universities, this event hopes to offer delegates an opportunity to meet with others who share their interests and to discuss their work, fostering ties that will endure throughout their studies. Many postgraduates also felt that the postgraduate conference held last year had provided them with a unique experience that prepared them to present papers to the annual conference of the Society for Caribbean Studies (SCS) that took place later in the year. This year’s SCS conference will be at the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies, Senate House, University of London, 4th – 6th July 2018.

Please send abstracts of up to 250 words (in English) to:
Ayshah Johnston: [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]><mailto:[log in to unmask]> and Diana Josan: [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]><mailto:[log in to unmask]>

by 30th April 2018 with the subject heading “Caribbean Postgraduate Conference”. Please include your university affiliation, your email address and your bio of up to 150 words.

We look forward to hearing from you,

Ayshah Johnston (PhD candidate at Newcastle University)
Postgraduate Representative of the Society for Caribbean Studies

Diana Josan (PhD candidate at Goldsmiths, University of London)
Postgraduate Representative of the Society for Caribbean Studies
