Caribbean Child Research Conference


The Caribbean Child Research Conference is a regional event, covering a range of child related themes. The conference aims to share research on children, strengthen the network of researchers on children issues, and encourage research in areas that are often “under-researched.” The conference presents an opportunity for children and adults to examine the status of children and child rights in the Caribbean. The Caribbean conference is however not simply about children - it also facilitates the meaningful participation of children. Children participate by attendance at the conference and presentation on the children’s panels.

Freedom and Power in the Caribbean: The Work of Gordon K. Lewis

The Centre for Caribbean Thought (CCT) UWI, Mona, in association with Africana Studies at Brown University and the Institute of Caribbean Studies, University of Puerto Rico, Rio Piedras is proud to host the VIIth Caribbean Reasonings Conference entitled Freedom and Power in the Caribbean: the Work of Gordon K. Lewis.  The conference, which was postponed from its original dates, due to the state of emergency in Kingston, will be held from September 30 - October 2 at the University of the West Indies, Mona.
Professor Gordon K. Lewis, (1919 – 1991) taught for many years at the University of Puerto Rico and wrote path-breaking books on the Caribbean’s history, politics and intellectual development. Texts such as Puerto Rico: Freedom and Power in the Caribbean (1963), The Growth of the Modern West Indies (1968), and Main Currents in Caribbean Thought: the historical evolution of Caribbean society in its ideological aspects (1983), exemplify the breadth of his interests as well as the range and quality of his output.

Lewis’ work transcended the region’s linguistic fragmentation and was consistent with the view that “No one could really claim to be a full practitioner in Caribbean Studies until he came to write ultimately, on the Caribbean as a whole.” (Main Currents in Caribbean Thought, (1983) Maingot, introduction vi). This conference in 2010 will reopen inter-territorial networks to enable studies across language barriers, a goal the Centre for Caribbean Thought has articulated and continues to realize since 2001 through several conferences and the “Caribbean Reasonings” book series with Ian Randle Publishers. It will also seek to introduce the seminal work of Gordon K. Lewis to a new generation of young scholars, interested in moving beyond constricting national barriers, in order to study the region in its entirety.

The Rastafari Studies Conference & General Assembly 2013

As Jamaica proudly celebrates her fiftieth jubilee of political independence, the Rastafari Movement also marks the fiftieth anniversary of Coral Gardens Massacre, an event that still haunts the wider society through the perennial, but unanswered, Rastafari calls for justice. The new nation-state less than one year old - during the Easter Holy Week, became embroiled in a series of violent events in the Coral Gardens and Rose Hall areas of St. James. On Holy Thursday April 11, 1963, six bearded men assumed to be Rastafarians attacked a gas station in Coral Gardens. They were reportedly armed with guns and machetes. This resulted in a skirmish and the death of two policemen, and six civilians including three of the assailants.
