Graduate students in government and politics at the University of the West Indies, Mona Campus, Jamaica, will host a conference from June 28 to July 2, 2007 at the Mona Campus. You are invited to participate. The conference theme is:
Re-imagining and Re-imaging Caribbean Futures: Studying Democracy, Governance, and Development.
The conference is open to graduates registered in a programme from the Masters to the Doctoral level in the sub-disciplines of Political Science/Political Theory, International Relations, Public Administration, or some related field for which a thesis is required. Colleagues from other disciplines are also invited.
The conference is to be a gathering of young scholars with a Caribbean connection or working on some topic of interest to the region and the conference theme. We want to create an opportunity to:
• Present our research
• Meet our fellow young scholars
• Create and sustain an association
• Consider the relevance and future of our discipline
• Discuss opportunities for publishing, further studies, and future careers
We hope to have three days of relaxed but productive learning and exchange, to meet and make friends, talk about our future as scholars and talk around themes of critical importance to our region and its people.
