Call for papers for early career researchers workshop
Rethinking Dutch Caribbean Studies
Leiden, October 26, 2017
This workshop seeks to explore new directions in Dutch Caribbean studies, focusing in particular on a new generation of PhD candidates and postdocs who are bringing critical, postcolonial approaches to Caribbeanist research in the Netherlands. How is the epistemological landscape of Caribbean studies changing as these new scholars reassess previous perspectives on the region, and mainly on Suriname, Aruba, Bonaire, Curaçao, Saba, St. Eustatius and St. Maarten? What new geographies of theorizing emerge as scholars trained in the Caribbean, Latin America, the United States, and elsewhere in Europe pursue postgraduate studies and postdoctoral research at Dutch universities? Are new ecologies of knowledge emerging following recent constitutional changes within the Kingdom of the Netherlands, or new geopolitical orientations in Suriname? We invite all early career Caribbeanist researchers in the social sciences and humanities to present their research-in-progress during this one-day workshop, which is sponsored by a grant from the KNAW (Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences). Please send a 250-word abstract and a brief bionote to Rivke Jaffe (firstname.lastname@example.org) by September 15, 2017.
