35th Annual Conference of the Society for Caribbean Studies - International Slavery Museum, Albert Dock, Liverpool

35th Annual Conference of the Society for Caribbean Studies

International Slavery Museum, Albert Dock, Liverpool
Wednesday 29th June - Friday 1st July 2011

Registration for this year's conference is now open. Over 70 speakers have submitted abstracts so we are looking forward to an exciting conference. A draft programme is available on the Society's webpage
The Programme includes a presentation by the 2011 Bridget Jones Travel Award winner, Annalee Davis. Annalee has been described as 'one of the region's most important and innovative artists whose work speaks directly to many of the Caribbean's most pressing issues', from the politics of gender, sexuality, and ethnicity, to concepts of development, the economic role of tourism and its consequences for small island states, inter-regional migration, and the politics of nationalism and regionalism. Her presentation to the Society for Caribbean Studies Annual Conference, entitled 'Has the Plantation Complex Fallen?', will engage with issues around undocumented migration, 'development' and the transformation of Caribbean landscapes in the era of globalisation.

The International Slavery Museum is located on Liverpool's Albert Dock, which is a World Heritage Site with the largest group of grade 1 listed buildings in the UK. Tate Britain art gallery, The Beatles Story museum, and the Maritime Museum, which is home to the International Slavery Museum, can all be found around the dockside.

There will be instructions on how to pay registration fees on this page. Recipients of our post-graduate bursaries will be able to select 'Bursary Recipient' from the dropdown fee menu.
