Dear Colleagues,


In collaboration with the Yesu Persaud Centre for Caribbean Studies (University of Warwick), the Institute of Commonwealth Studies is delighted to invite Prof. Tina K. Ramnarine (Royal Holloway, University of London) to deliver this yearís Gafoor Lecture on Indentureship Studies. We will also welcome Prof. Stephen Rabe (Emeritus, University of Texas at Dallas), who will be marking the centenary of the birth of former Indian-Guyanese premier Cheddi Jagan with a lecture entitled: 'The United States vs. Cheddi Jagan: A Case of Mistaken Identity'.



In addition to these fascinating lectures, we are pleased to announce two special poetry readings. In response to his research in Senate House Libraryís Cheddi Jagan archive, poet Mr Gee will perform a new piece inspired by the life of this remarkable politician. Following this the Commonwealth Writers organisation, who recently commissioned a unique piece of joint-poetry from the descendants of indenture, will close the event with the first public reading of this exciting new work by Kama La Mackerel, Gitanjali Pyndiah and Athol Williams.


Date
28 November 2018, 2.00pm - 6.00pm
