Newsletter April 2012
We hope you had a successful winter semester!
With the following newsletter, we would like to inform you about some upcoming SoCaRe- activities, such as the CSA conference or youth-workshop; but also to remind you to the annual membership fee.
1. CSA-meeting at Guadeloupe
Our SoCaRe-panel on the CSA-meeting from may 28th – june 1st in Le Gosier/ Guadeloupe has been accepted. We have invited colleagues from the social-sciences to submit together a twin panel, making it possible to discuss aspects of « Cultural Negotiations of Belonging » very broadly.
To our double panel:
PART 1: INTERCONNECTIONS & DIASPORAS
PART 2: ARTISTIC AND INTELLECTUAL INQUIRY
In this way, we hope to make the work of SoCaRe more public.
- Workshop for young researchers
The next SoCaRe junior workshop will be held in the first quarter of 2013 in Hanover. Roughly defined subject as it is here go to the following:
« EXPLORING CARIBBEAN DECOLONIALITY THROUGH THE CONTEMPLATION OF GENDER AND FAMILY »
The Workshop approaches paradigms and discourses of decoloniality by focussing on cultural, social and political constellations of gender and family within the English, French, Spanish and Portuguese speaking Caribbean. Literary and artistic articulations are considered as well as empiric focuses on sociopolitical processes and cultural performances.
- (Outstanding) membership-fees
Further more, we would like to remind all members with (outstanding) membership-fees, especially because April 1st is the annual payment day for 2012.
We further would like to remind all members to pending fees from 2011 and check if necessary.
- Homepage Innovations
On our website <http://www.caribbeanresearch.net/de> will be soon some innovation available. In particular, the menu Worldwide Caribbean Studies is being complemented. A look at this upgrade is worth it.
With best Regards,
Your Executive Board
