SOCARE Junior Conference
October 20–22, 2022
CALL FOR PARTICIPATION
“WHOSE VOICE? POWER, KNOWLEDGE, AND POSITIONALITY IN CARIBBEAN STUDIES”
Luis Ramón Campo Yumar (Universidad Central de Las Villas, Cuba)
Sarah Nimführ (University of Arts Linz, Austria)
Whose knowledge is recognized, and what voices are heard within Caribbean studies? This conference focuses on how knowledge is produced, shared, and received, and on what changes are needed to ensure that power is shared, while epistemic differences are included and valued.
Doctoral students and postdoctoral researchers of linguistics and literature, history and the social sciences, arts and cultural studies, and those working beyond or between these fields of knowledge, are invited to submit a full-page abstract and a brief academic biography (max. 100 words) for a presentation at the conference: juniorresearch(a)caribbeanresearch.net
Aim is to facilitate a small, discussion-focused, and collegial conference that explores how power, knowledge, and positionality are negotiated in Caribbean studies research through researchers’ specific projects. On all conference days, there will be keynotes or round table discussions that provide insights into current debates in individual disciplines and topics. After the conference, a publication is planned, open to all interested participants.
The CFP has been published in English, Spanish, German, and French, but submissions in other languages are also welcomed. Regardless of the language of the submission, three to five keywords in English should be sent to facilitate program planning.
