Sir Arthur Lewis Institute of Social and Economic Studies
17th Annual SALISES Conference
“Revolution, Socio-economic Change and Freedoms”
Commemorating 50 Years of Independence in Barbados and Guyana; and the Bicentennial of the 1816 Rebellion (Bussa Revolt, Barbados)
MARCH 30 – APRIL 01, 2016
ANNOUNCEMENT & CALL FOR PAPERS – DEADLINE EXTENDED – OCTOBER 31, 2015
The appeal is for papers prepared to address: Unexamined shortcuts; questions about inequality at every scale; fictional knowledge; and considerations of empire, race, gender and sexual orientation. The emphasis on revolution, social change and freedoms is deliberate as the aim is to encourage contributors to lever discussion back to first order considerations of human wellbeing and ecological harmony.
