Part of The RITA Group Seminar Series #4 2013-14

The fourth in a four seminar series, funded by the Institute for Latin American Studies and with the generous support of the University of Birmingham is 'Imagining Caribbean Future Spaces'.

“[W]e need imaginations that are sensitive to inner-city decay and the lungs of the globe orchestrated into forests and rivers and skies. We need to build afresh through the brokenness of our world….” (Wilson Harris).  This one-day symposium looks at the ways in which the Caribbean and the future are imagined together.  How has the future of the Caribbean been imagined and how is it being re-imagined at a time of environmental change and global insecurity?  How does the future look when we imagine it in and through the Caribbean – is the Caribbean a space to imagine the future differently? 

The programme is available here.

The event will be held at The University of Birmingham in Room 311, Geography Building, Edgbaston, Birmingham B15 2TT. For information on how to get there click here
