12th ICCL in Cuba, November 1 - 6, 2011; organized by Morehouse College, Casa de las Américas, and Road Scholar
Conference Theme: An Intimate Connection with the Authors and People of Cuba
This year ICCL has accepted an unprecedented and unparalleled opportunity to interact intimately with some of Cuba’s’ foremost authors and cultural artists. We have also arranged a unique program of meaningful opportunities for you to interact with the Cuban people as you explore important historical and cultural sites in Havana, where lectures, discussions, readings and performances by prominent Cuban writers, artists and intellectuals will be held. For this venture, we are privileged to partner with Road Scholar and with Casa de las Américas. In order for you to be a part of this historic experience, it is absolutely imperative that you register with Road Scholar no later than September 20, 2011. We think that you will NOT want to miss the exciting program ICCL and Road Scholar have arranged for your education and enjoyment during the six days of the conference (see attached program and speaker biographies).
Although this year we are particularly interested in Cuban literature, we invite papers and panels on any aspects of Caribbean literature. Papers may be presented in Spanish, French, or English and should last no longer than 20 minutes. Please send 150-word abstracts (in the language of your intended presentation) to Dr. Melvin B. Rahming, Co-founder of ICCL (email@example.com) (404)-625-3822. Please direct any questions having to do with ICCL panels to Dr. Leah Creque (firstname.lastname@example.org), (770) 331- 0657 or Dr. Michael Janis (email@example.com) (770-819-8242), both of whom are co-directors of ICCL. Abstracts and proposals MUST be received by September 20, 2011.
