Research in Jamaica?


I am a Ph.D. Candidate of History at the University of North Texas, and I will be traveling to Jamaica to conduct dissertation research May 12-24. I was wondering if anyone on this list had any tips regarding transportation around the island. I will be staying at UWI and I will need to go to Kingston and Spanish Town. Also, if anyone else will be in Jamaica at the same time and wants to commute together, that would be lovely! Please contact me at chloenorthrop@my.unt.edu. Thank you all for any information you might provide!

Dear H-Caribbean subscribers,

Please see the latest CFP for my graduate program's journal, InVisible Culture: An Electronic Journal for Visual Culture (pasted below). Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions.

CFP: Workshop--Public Health in the Caribbean and Latin America: A Historical Perspective, York, 18-20 July 2014

Diffusionist models of understanding the histories of medicine and health practices in non-European countries have increasingly been discredited. Instead, scholars now highlight the multi-directional movement of ideas and practices between Europe and other parts of the world, as well as the mutually-constitutive character of imperialism, post-colonial ideologies and development projects.

CFP: Representing and Remembering Slavery in the Americas, University of York (UK), 30-31 May

This conference is designed to bring together academics interested in the history of slavery in the Americas (c.15-19th century), but also to allow scholars to address contemporary cultural and political representations and remembrances of slavery.
