Third panelist sought for a proposed session of the 41st Annual Conference of the Association of Caribbean Historians, Guadeloupe, May 2009.
The session queries the implications, broadly conceived, of Caribbean movement and transience - whether it be ideas, commodities, or people (laborers, soldiers, tourists, etc) flowing both in and out of the region during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Although the submission of papers outside this chronology is encouraged, those falling in the period from approximately 1865 to 1930 will be given priority (the other two panelists address subjects of concern in the first two decades of the 20th century). Papers that problematize the analytic concept of ‘region’ as it pertains to the creation (or obfuscation) of knowledge about the Caribbean are most welcome, as are those which position the region in a transatlantic or comparative context.
Please submit your abstract as soon as possible. I will need to collect all the materials for presentation to the conference committee by August 30th, so please get in touch with me a few days in advance of this date. ** Note that in keeping with the ACH submission guidelines, each panelist is required to submit his/her abstracts in 3 languages: English, French *AND* Spanish. Thank you!
