Dr Louise Hardwick has presented a research paper on Francophone Caribbean Cinema at the Birmingham-based conference “Contemporary Caribbean Visual Culture: Artistic Visions of Global Citizenship”.

The conference, a collaborative event organised by Conrad James (Department of Modern Languages, University of Birmingham) and Carlos Garrido Castellano (Departamento de Historia del Arte, Universidad de Granada), was a wonderful opportunity to exchange ideas with specialists from Guadeloupe, Martinique and metropolitan France, as well as from the wider Caribbean (Anglophone, Hispanophone and Dutch-speaking).
