The Center of Interdisciplinary Research in Languages, Arts and Humanities
(CRILLASH) of the Université des Antilles et de la Guyane, welcomes
proposals for papers for the 3rd Symposium of the Young Caribbean
Researchers to be held October 15-16, 2009 on the campus of Schoelcher in
Martinique, French West Indies. The conference is a biennual event for the
fostering of innovative research among academics, artists and writers who
either belong to the Caribbean Diaspora or have dedicated an important part
of their studies to the “Sixth Continent”.
An interdisciplinary perspective urges us to look into the following issues
: how can a Caribbean nation be imagined beyond geographical, linguistic
and political boundaries? How have diasporas contributed to the formation
and evolution of Caribbean societies, and to the gradual transformation of
the host countries in which Caribbean migrants have settled?
Please include the title and brief description of the presentation (no more
than 300 words), names and affiliations of the presenters, and contact
information. The deadline for submission is August 15, 2009. The committee
will notify selected participants by September 1st.
Proposals and questions should be addressed to : Pr. Lionel DAVIDAS
v-ag.fr) or to Dr. Frédéric Lefrançois
(email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org).
