Book release...Caribbean Literature in Transition, 1800–1920 (vol 1) edited by Evelyn O'Callaghan and Tim Watson

Caribbean Literature in Transition, 1800–1920 (vol 1) edited by Evelyn O'Callaghan and Tim Watson

This volume examines what Caribbean literature looked like before 1920 by surveying the print culture of the period. The emphasis is on narrative, including an enormous range of genres, in varying venues, and in multiple languages of the Caribbean. Essays examine lesser-known authors and writing previously marginalized as nonliterary: popular writing in newspapers and pamphlets; fiction and poetry such as romances, sentimental novels, and ballads; non-elite memoirs and letters, such as the narratives of the enslaved or the working classes, especially women. Many contributions are comparative, multilingual, and regional. Some infer the cultural presence of subaltern groups within the texts of the dominant classes. Almost all of the chapters move easily between time periods, linking texts, writers, and literary movements in ways that expand traditional notions of literary influence and canon formation. Using literary, cultural, and historical analyses, this book provides a complete re-examination of early Caribbean literature.

[12/21/20]   The UWI Open Campus Saint Lucia cordially extends a personal invitation to you to make a presentation at our virtual Country Conference 2021 scheduled for Tuesday16th and Wednesday 17th February, 2021. An exciting feature of this latest conference is that we have joined forces with the GEF SGP UNDP Knowledge Fair, to uncover, present and document the most recent research conducted on Saint Lucia, with a view to seeking solutions to the existential threat to our collective futures, caused by climate change and climate variability, and compounded by socio-economic inequalities. This partnership will ensure that the research presented has local, regional and international reach.
The overall theme of the conference is “Visioning Sustainable Futures - Confronting the Threats of Climate Change and Climate Variability.
Please see the attached call for papers that provides a more detailed breakdown of the theme.

CALL FOR PAPERS

The UWI Open Campus Saint Lucia
Virtual Country Conference 2021

“Visioning Sustainable Futures - Confronting the Threats of Climate Change and Climate Variability.

16th and 17th February, 2021

Background
The University of the West Indies (UWI) has a mandate to educate and to share information with the public to promote research and innovation, as part of its mission to develop and maintain the sustainability of its contributing territories. As one means of carrying out this mandate, the former UWI School of Continuing Studies (now The UWI Open Campus) established a series of multidisciplinary Country Conferences to be held in each of what were previously known as the “UWI-12” (UWI contributing countries outside of Trinidad, Barbados and Jamaica). The conference series and subsequent publications are designed to stimulate and highlight research on each country. Each conference provides an opportunity to share existing research and disseminate information about the host country.
The year 2021 marks the start of another round of Country Conferences and The UWI Open Campus Saint Lucia is poised to host its 3rd such conference.
An exciting feature of this latest conference is that we have joined forces with the GEF SGP UNDP Knowledge Fair, to uncover, present and document the most recent research conducted on Saint Lucia, with a view to seeking solutions to the existential threat to our collective futures, caused by climate change and climate variability, and compounded by socio-economic inequalities. This partnership will ensure that the research presented has local, regional and international reach.
As with all other areas of endeavour across the globe, we too have had to adjust to the “new normal” due to the impact of COVID 19. The need to factor social distancing guidelines and other related health protocols into our planning means that, for the first time, our conference will be a virtual event. Rather than lamenting the change, we embrace it as an opportunity for greater democratization of the conference. We expect that the use of this modality will impact positively on the number of presenters able to participate in the conference and are forging ahead, confident that a blended approach, using mostly virtual, but also face to face presentations where possible, will be well received.
Conference Focus
The overall theme of the conference is “Visioning Sustainable Futures - Confronting the Threats of Climate Change and Climate Variability”. The conference takes place on the 16th and 17th of February , 2021. As in previous years, The UWI Open Campus Saint Lucia Country Conference is expected to create an environment for sharing, learning and problem solving - a necessary step towards facilitating the management of indigenous knowledge for our own use, thus providing an avenue by which research on Saint Lucia can provide solutions to local problems while also making a substantial contribution to the global discourse on climate change.

Please note that every effort will be made to accommodate presenters wishing to share/demonstrate the practical application of their research and how it may already be contributing towards solving the impact of climate change and climate variability.

Suggested topics include but are not limited to:
• Climate Change Education
• Science, Technology and New Climate Change Solutions
• Agriculture and Climate Change
• Tourism Development and Climate Change
• Climate Change and Environmental Degradation
• The Gender Dimensions of Poverty and Climate Change Adaptation
• Information and Knowledge Management for Climate Change
• Climate Change and Public Health
• The Impact of Climate Change on Fisheries and Aquaculture
• Financing Climate Change Adaptation – Indigenous Sources
• Climate Change Impacts on Physical and Urban Planning
• The Economics of Climate Change
• Cultural Dimensions of Climate Change: Impacts and Adaptation
• Improving Knowledge of Observed and Future Climate Conditions and their Current and Expected Impacts in Saint Lucia
• Understanding the Drivers and Distribution of Vulnerability to Climate Change in Saint Lucia
• Evaluating Climate Change-Induced Risk in Saint Lucia
• Limiting and Addressing Climate Change Impacts in Saint Lucia
• Communicating Crucial Climate Change Information across Audiences and Improving Stakeholder engagement in Climate Action

Sub-themes will be finalized according to the range of abstracts received. No limit has been set on the number of sub-themes, since the Conference aims to pull together as much recent research done on Saint Lucia as possible.

The Conference is open to anyone who has conducted research on Saint Lucia in any related subject area. Presentations are to be of a 20-minute duration followed by a 20-minute moderated discussion after each individual or panel presentation.
