Dear Colleagues,
 

Booking is still open for the symposium 'Our (Queer) Caribbean' co-organised by Prof. Thomas Glave, Race in the Americas (RITA), and the Centre for Integrated Caribbean Research. The event will take place on Friday 26th October 2018, at Senate House, University of London.

The keynote address will be delivered by Prof. Alison Donnell and there will be a roundtable discussion featuring Philip Dayle, Thomas Glave, Dorothea Smartt and Lawrence Scott.

The symposium will explore: How have Caribbean queer perspectives and Caribbean LGBTQI activism changed since Our Caribbean (Glave [ed.] 2008)? What new insights and social/political realities have emerged since the publication of this ground-breaking collection of queer writing from the Antilles?
