CfP: 43th Annual Meeting: The Association of Caribbean Historians (05/2011, Puerto Rico); DL: 30.09.2010

The Association of Caribbean Historians (ACH) (Web)

Venue: Puerto Rico
Time: May 2011
Deadline: 30.09.2010

The ACH is an independent, non-profit, professional organization whose principal activity is an annual conference, alternately hosted by an English-, Spanish-, French-, or Dutch-speaking Caribbean country. To encourage intellectual exchange, all delegates attend each conference session and all papers and discussions are simultaneously translated in English, Spanish and French.

Information about how to propose either an individual paper or panel are already posted online. The Topics include:

  • Religion in the Nineteenth- and Twentieth-Century Caribbean
  • The Relationship between Caribbean Literature and History
  • Political Institutions of the Twentieth Century
  • Financial and Banking Comparisons
  • Transportation and Travel History
  • Haiti and African-Atlantic Identities in the Nineteenth Century
  • Israelites, Jews and Rastafarianism in the Caribbean
  • Digital Sources for the Study of Caribbean History
  • Teaching Caribbean History
  • Dance and Culture of the Caribbean, in Honor of Rex Nettleford
  • Slavery and Abolition in the Spanish and Circum-Caribbean
  • Archives and the Construction of Knowledge
  • Intellectual Traditions of the Twentieth Century

In the meantime, consider joining us in Puerto Rico in May 2011. All proposals are due to the ACH Secretary-Treasurer by September 30, 2010.
