Event Description

The Caribbean Studies Speakers Series (CSSS) represents a collective effort to foreground Caribbean Studies at Princeton University by convening a group of scholars on the basis of their innovative research in and on the region. From experimental soundscapes and digital self-writing to archival pedagogies and emancipatory memory, the works of these pioneers cross academic disciplines, not to mention historical, linguistic, and national boundaries. At the same time, they provide novel insights into ever-present question about citizenship and belonging, racialization and coloniality. The series will consist of three to take place on September 22, October 31 and November 15 of 2022 which will be centered on sound theory, archival studies, and literary production, respectively. Each panel will feature three guest speakers, accompanied by a faculty discussant and a graduate student moderator from Princeton.
