A one-day open forum on Caribbean queerness
Friday, 26th October 2018
The Centre for Integrated Caribbean Research
University of London, Senate House, Malet Street, London WC1E 7HU
How have Caribbean queer perspectives and Caribbean LGBTQI activism changed since Our Caribbean?
What new insights and social/political realities have emerged since the publication of this ground-breaking 2008 collection of queer writing from the Antilles?
The Race in the Americas (RITA) group, in collaboration with the Centre for Integrated Caribbean Research (CICR), is proud to announce an event marking the tenth anniversary of Our Caribbean. In staging an open forum for discussion – as influenced by this ten-year perspective – we invite submissions on any of the following themes:
Queer Caribbean identities; transgender realities in the Caribbean; legislation and administration of sexual politics and identity; homophobia within Caribbean societies and diasporas; Antillean intersections of sexuality, race and gender; emerging queer Caribbean literatures, and Caribbean queerness in cinema, theatre, dance and popular culture.
Please send all submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Friday 7th September 2018
