If this is the second time you are reading this, please accept my apologies for cross-posting. My name is Jason Daniel and I am a doctoral candidate at Florida International University. I am interested in organizing a panel for the 2019 AHA in Chicago. My dissertation is about the consumption of timber for shipbuilding in early eighteenth-century Cuba.
I am hoping to recruit fellow scholars of the twentieth century Caribbean who are interested in presenting work related to cultural production and processes of decolonization in Caribbean societies to collaborate at A/H/A 2019 in Chicago.

With apologies for cross-postings, I wanted to bring this job ad to your attention because some of you may not be aware that this department has a history of recruiting faculty for its Culture & Society track with degrees in fields such as history, sociology and anthropology, among others.
With my best,
Assistant or Associate Professor of French and Francophone Studies
