Special Call for Undergraduate and Graduate Student Papers

The 29th Annual Caribbean Studies Association conference is committed to increasing student participation this year.

This exciting, international conference is open to students from all disciplines, from all countries, and from all levels of the university.

We are soliciting papers or panels by students on Caribbean Basin Studies (includes Central and Latin American countries which border the Caribbean) or on issues relating to Caribbean culture, Caribbean Literature, Health, Economics, or identity in the Caribbean diaspora. Papers on music, youth and popular culture are particularly welcome.

There will be special program opportunities for English, Spanish, and French-students, including:

  • A preconference reception for all student CSA members
  • A special session on "Finishing your Ph.D., Getting a Job, and Doing Caribbean Studies"
  • Special Senior Caribbean Scholars designated as academic 'Aunties' and 'Uncles' to each new student member
  • A chance to give a paper at a renowned, international conference
  • Great after-conference social events!
  • The presentation of the annual Barbara Christian Award for outstanding student writing

This year the conference will be held on the beautiful island of St. Kitts from 31 May to 5 June, 2004. For more details see the conference web site at:
