The Sidney Poitier International Conference and Film Festival will be held in Nassau, Bahamas February 23-27, 2010 at The College of The Bahamas. We seek to encourage a fresh interrogation of the social, cultural, and political significance of the Poitier oeuvre. We invite papers or panel presentations that explore the broad spectrum of critical issues summoned up by Poitier’s work as actor, director, and author. Please send abstracts via email to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Abstracts should be submitted by July 31, 2009, and should be no longer than 250 words. Two graduate student travel grants will be awarded. Those seeking these
grants should submit an abstract of 500 words and must submit full papers by November 30, 2009.
