Dear Colleagues, Students and Researchers,


We are pleased to announce the staging of the next University of the West Indies / University of Leicester (UWI/UL) International Summer School which is to be held at the University of the West Indies, Mona Campus, Jamaica in May 2022: <>


The UWI/UL International Summer School ran for the first time in June 2019, hosted by the University of Leicester. Due to COVID, the 2020 programme was cancelled, and then in 2021 it ran as a shorter virtual workshop, hosted by the University of the West Indies, Mona Campus.


We are pleased to be able to now confirm that the 2022 summer school will take place from 23 to 27 May 2022, where we will explore the original theme of ‘Cultures and Politics of Protest’.


The organisers, Drs. Sonjah Stanley Niaah and Michael Bucknor, have compiled an exciting and varied cross-disciplinary programme which includes seminars and lectures on topics such as film, theatre and poetry as protest; reparations as protest; mental health, power and protest; social movements and protest; and spirituality as protest.


The UWI/UL International Summer School is an annual, week-long intensive programme with an emphasis on both academic and professional development. It is aimed at postgraduate students and early career researchers from the Caribbean and the UK with an interest in global studies and a background in any discipline across the arts, humanities and social sciences, and we encourage applicants with a diverse range of interests.


The application deadline is 11 February 2022. You can find more information here <> and access the online application form <>. For more information, please contact Mrs Bettene Ross-Lawes ( <>).
