46th Annual Conference of the Society for Caribbean Studies, 5-8 July 2023


The Society for Caribbean Studies (SCS) invites scholars to submit abstracts of no more than 250 words for research papers, on the Hispanic, Francophone, Dutch and Anglophone Caribbean and their diasporas, for presentation at our 2023 conference. We hope to hold this event in person. We invite papers from all disciplines of Caribbean Studies across the arts, humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences. The Society is eager to receive proposals that centre the non-Anglophone Caribbean. Proposals may address any theme or topic focused on the Greater Caribbean and should be submitted by 9 January 2023


While we do not have a specific theme for 2023's conference, we welcome papers exploring: 

  • sovereignty in the Caribbean 
  • the bicentenary of the Demerara Rebellion of 1823 
  • the 1953 election in Guyana 
  • the 40th anniversary of the US invasion of Grenada 
  • the 75th anniversary since of the docking of the Windrush 
  • the 1993 murder of Stephen Lawrence 


Please submit your abstract, along with a short bio of no more than 150 words, via the following page: 

We also welcome proposals for complete panels, which should consist of a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 4 presenters. Please note: a separate abstract and bio should be submitted for each paper. Each conference presentation should not exceed 20 minutes. You will receive an automated response when you submit and be notified of acceptance by the end of February.
