Conference: War and the Caribbean, 20 April 2012

War has been an important engine of economic, social, and cultural change in the Caribbean since the first arrival of Europeans. Violence has shaped, and re-shaped, imperial boundaries to change the rules of the region’s economic game and its notions of citizenship, gender, and race. This conference will consider the causes and consequences of general, and internal, wars in the region during the colonial period and how they highlight the changing nature of its economic and strategic importance in the world order.

The University of Edinburgh hosts a one-day conference on 20 April 2012 on War and the Caribbean, speakers include:

Camillia Cowling (University of Edinburgh) Philip Morgan (Johns Hopkins) Anya Zilberstein (Concordia University)
