CARIBBEAN STUDIES ASSOCIATION – OUR HISTORY

T

he Caribbean Studies Association (CSA) CCCcis an independent professional organisation devoted to the promotion of Caribbean studies from a multidisciplinary, multicultural point of view. It is the primary association for scholars and practitioners working on the Caribbean Region (including Central America and the Caribbean coast of South America). Its members come from the Caribbean Region, North America, South America, Central America, Europe and elsewhere, even though more than half of its members live in the United States, many of them teaching at US universities and colleges. Founded in 1974 by 300 Caribbeanists, the CSA now has over 1,100 members. The Caribbean Studies Association enjoys nonprofit status and is independent of any public or private institution. Membership is open to anyone interested in sharing its objectives, regardless of academic discipline, profession, ideology, place of residence, ethnic origin or nationality. The focus of the CSA is on the Caribbean Basin which includes Central America, the Caribbean Coast of Mexico, as well as Venezuela, Colombia, Northeast Brazil and the three Guianas. The Association serves a critical function for scholars

providing one of the only venues for persons working on the Caribbean to come together to share their work, to engage in collaborative endeavours, to exchange ideas, to meet each other, and to develop the field of Caribbean Studies. Most importantly, the Caribbean Studies Association has become potentially one of the most important vehicles for researching, analysing, and documenting the growing significant presence of populations of Caribbean descent in the United States, Canada, and Europe. It provides the perfect venue for maintaining the intellectual and academic connections needed to study this growing phenomenon. Members of the CSA have played leading roles in the Caribbean, most notably in public service and in academia. These include current and past service as leaders of governments, administrators i n mul t i la t er a l a nd bi la t er a l r e gi on al organisations. Many of our current members serve in senior positions at Caribbean, North American and European universities.

PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE

PATRICIA MOHAMMED

D

ear CSA members, first-timers and those whose support has made this year's programme possible – on behalf of the Executive Council and Advisory Board I extend a warm welcome to the 34th Annual Conference of the Caribbean Studies Association (CSA) and to Jamaica. We look forward to greeting old friends and inviting new members and participants into the extended family of over 1,000 who now constitute the association's membership. When you come to a CSA conference and join this association, you have already made the commitment to one of the many goals that the association serves, of advancing the development of this region and the welfare of its diasporic population. In this vein I pay homage to the 33 presidents and the numerous executive council members before this year's team who have committed themselves to delivering a conference and taking the CSA through another term. In selecting the site of Jamaica this year, one of the few prerogatives the president has for his or her year of office, I have brought the membership to my second home in the Caribbean. The theme of the conference, “Centering the Caribbean in Caribbean Studies”, started with a niggling thought that refused to be dismissed over the last decade. While the CSA emerged as an association 34 years ago through the initiatives of scholars situated in North America, I was increasingly concerned about the benefits to Caribbean societies who served each year as hosts to the annual conferences. How do these societies gain

from our annual invasions which require for success the time of local organising committees, and inputs of commercial and institutional funding? Then there was the term 'Caribbean Studies' itself, one which was taken for granted – as if this had not itself undergone shifts in emphasis and disciplinary interests in three decades. Commenting on the selected theme, Prof. Bhoendradatt Tewarie (Pro Vice Chancellor, Planning, University of the West Indies) asks, “What impact has the decades of Caribbean Studies had on the Caribbean? What has thinking, discussing and writing about the Caribbean done for the Caribbean?” A fluctuation of interest in the Caribbean must also engage us: flavour of the day a few centuries ago, the Caribbean has slipped gently into obsolescence on the Western Hemispheric stage, which two-day hosted meetings of the Summit of the Americas cannot easily resolve – we are small players in a very big field. In the world of scholarship and publishing, Caribbean markets are miniscule and hold very little interest for large presses that must sell books and information to survive. Thus when Dr. Diana Thorburn, Programme Chair and UWI Jamaican scholar, coined the phrase that would become the theme, we were both committed as longstanding CSA members to engaging this year's conference in discussions around these issues. Jamaica was one of the best places to do so, as site of the first UWI campus. With the full support of Professor Gordon Shirley, Principal of UWI's Mona

PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE
Campus, and with Annette Insanally, Director of the Latin American–Caribbean Centre as our Local Organising Chair, together with the ongoing backing of Dr Hamid Ghany, Dean of the Faculty of Social Sciences (who has hosted the CSA Secretariat at the UWI St Augustine over the last four years), the Principal of the St Augustine Campus, Professor Clement Sankat, and the Pro Vice Chancellors of Research and Graduate Studies, Professors Wayne Hunte and Ronald Young, we can safely attest to the partnership of the University of the West Indies in this year's conference and to our shared institutional interests in tertiary-level delivery in hammering out ideas in this theme. We were overwhelmed with applications of all kinds this year, and have divided these into tracked sessions that may allow us to shop wisely in the department store of panels, plenaries and performances that await you in this programme. We have attempted to create no clashes with the three plenaries that deal with the main theme of the conference in order to allow for full participation by members. We invited as scholarin-residence for the week, Professor George Lamming, noted Caribbean author; and we have created a film and performance track that sets up an alternative space in the Jonkanoo Lounge of the Hilton Hotel for the other languages from which culture writes – visuality, dance, orality and music. The association runs on the wheels of its Executive Council, Advisory Board, Secretariat and members who commit themselves and deliver on their promises. I thank each of you who will have made this programme a success – a full list appears on appropriate pages of this programme. At the same time, I must single out for special attention those who have tirelessly worked on the details that have made up the whole. Dr. Diana Thorburn as Programme Chair has been unstinting and caring in her role. Annette Insanally as Local Organising Chair I have come to know, respect and be in awe of in terms of her managerial and organisational skills. Ms Joy Cooblal, Secretary/Treasurer, CSA, and Ms Michelle Seeraj (Research Assistant, UWI, St. Augustine) who assisted as secretariat members at St A ugust ine, were invaluable and irreplaceable as colleagues. Professor Anton Allahar was a hard act to follow as the cheerful yet grounded past president, and he continued to provide this year the benefit of his experience, as did Dr. Dwaine Plaza, Programme Chair 2007/8. Drs. Samuel Fure (Cuba) and Maggie Shrimpton (Mexico) looked after travel grant issues that have brought some of you here; while Professor Jocelyne Guilbault and incoming CSA president Linden Lewis have ensured that we have free and fair elections to select the next executive. We invite each paid-up member to ensure that you exercise your vote. Each year we also depend on and celebrate our authors, presses and publishers who have become our regulars, and for the organisation of this aspect of our programme and the annual book launch event we thank Drs. Carolle Charles and Lisa Outar. The CSA conference brings us all together to unite on some common ground, despite differences of many hues. We wanted to put together a conference programme that admittedly, begins uncharacteristically early. Although taxing for those who keep late nights, we have provided times throughout the programme for a siesta if you so choose, or engagement in other spheres where numerous invaluable exchanges take place in the CSA – in our recreated internet café in the Hilton mezzanine, and at carefully spaced out receptions and activities that allow us time for a more fluid and pleasurable melding of ideas. For those of you who will experience Jamaica for the first time, or through the eyes of the CSA, I hope that this conference will prove to be productive, enjoyable and inspiring.

MENSAJE DE LA PRESIDENTA

E

stimados miembros de la CSA -los que se nos unen por primera vez y aquellos cuya contribución ha hecho posible el programa de este año, - a nombre del Consejo Ejecutivo y la Junta Asesora, les extiendo una calurosa bienvenida a la XXXIV Conferencia Anual de la Asociación de Estudios Caribeños y a Jamaica. Esperamos con ansiedad saludar viejos amigos y acoger a los nuevos miembros y participantes dentro de una familia extendida de más de 1000, quienes ahora constituyen la membrecía de la asociación. Cuando participan en una conferencia de la CSA y se unen a esta Asociación, ya se han comprometido con uno de los muchos propósitos a los que sirve la asociación, el de continuar el desarrollo de esta Región y el bienestar de su población en la diáspora. En este sentido me gustaría rendir homenaje a los 33 Presidentes y los numerosos miembros del consejo ejecutivo que precedieron el trabajo del equipo de este año, quienes se dedicaron a realizar con éxito una conferencia y conducir la CSA hacia otro periodo de trabajo. Al seleccionar a Jamaica como sede este año, aprovechando una de las pocas prerrogativas que el Presidente tiene para su mandato, he logrado traer a la membrecía a mi segundo hogar en el Caribe. El tema de la conferencia "Centrando el Caribe en los estudios Caribeños" comenzó con una pequeña idea que se ha negado a ser rechazada durante la última década. Aún cuando la CSA nació como una asociación hace 34 años por medio de las iniciativas de estudiosos que vivían en Norteamérica, me sobrecogía la creciente preocupación sobre los beneficios para aquellas sociedades caribeñas que habían servido cada año como sedes de las conferencias anuales. ¿Qué ganancias derivaban aquellas sociedades de nuestras invasiones anuales que para su éxito requerían el tiempo de los comités organizadores locales, así como la contribución financiera de los comercios e instituciones? Además de ello, teníamos el término Estudios Caribeños como tal, dado por sentado – como si el mismo no hubiese sufrido cambios en su énfasis e intereses disciplinarios durante tres décadas. Al comentar

sobre el tema escogido, el Dr. Bhoendradatt Tewarie (Vicerrector de Planificación de la UWI), se preguntaba "¿Qué impacto han tenido las décadas de Estudios Caribeños sobre el Caribe? ¿Qué han aportado al Caribe las ideas, discusiones y escritos sobre el Caribe?" Debemos comprometernos también con una fluctuación en los intereses sobre el Caribe - de sabor cotidiano hace algunos años, el Caribe se ha escurrido sigilosamente hacia una obsolescencia en el escenario del Hemisferio Occidental y esto no puede resolverse fácilmente con dos días de reuniones en la Cumbre de las Américas – somos jugadores pequeños en un campo demasiado grande. En el mundo académico y publicitario, los mercados caribeños son minúsculos y reportan muy poco interés para la gran prensa que está obligada a vender libros e información para sobrevivir. Es así que cuando la Dra. Diana Thorburn, Presidenta del Programa y académica de la Universidad UWI acuñara la frase que se convertiría en el tema, como miembros activos de la CSA por mucho tiempo, quedamos ambas comprometidas a estimular durante esta conferencia discusiones pertinentes a estos asuntos. Consideramos que Jamaica es uno de los mejores espacios para hacerlo, en cuanto sede del primer recinto universitario de UWI y con el apoyo total del Profesor Gordon Shirley, Rector de UWI para el Recinto de Mona, y Annette Insanally, Directora del Centro para América Latina y el Caribe …como nuestra Presidenta Local del Comité Organizador. Todo esto, unido al continuo apoyo del Dr. Hamid Ghany, Decano de la Facultad de Ciencias Sociales, quien ha brindado la sede a la Secretaría de la CSA en la UWI St. Augustine durante los últimos cuatro años, el Rector del recinto de St. Augustine Profesor Clement Sankat, los Vicerrectores de Investigación y Estudios de Postgrado, Profesores Wayne Hunte y Ronald Young, nos permite anticipar con certeza la participación de la Universidad de West Indies durante la conferencia de este año y asegurar que compartimos intereses institucionales comunes sobre una educación superior enfocada en ideas

MENSAJE DE LA PRESIDENTA
que se relacionan con este tema. Abrumados por la enorme cantidad de propuestas para presentaciones de todo tipo este año, d ec idi mos di vi dir las e n sesion es relacionadas de manera que puedan escoger sabiamente de entre la oferta de los paneles, plenarias y actuaciones que les aguardan en este programa. Hemos tratado de evitar coincidencias entre las tres plenarias que tratan sobre el tema central de la conferencia a fin de permitir una participación total de la membrecía. Hemos invitado un estudioso en residencia para la semana, el Profesor George Lamming, notable autor Caribeño, y hemos preparado una pista de filme y actuación que ofrece un espacio alternativo en el Salón Jonkanoo del Hotel Hilton para aquellos otros lenguajes que conforman la cultura- visuales, danza, oralidad y música. La Asociación funciona gracias al trabajo del Consejo Ejecutivo, la Junta Asesora, la Secretaría y los miembros que se comprometen y cumplen sus promesas. Mi agradecimiento a cada uno de ustedes que ha contribuido al éxito de este programa – en las páginas pertinentes encontrarán un listado completo. Al mismo tiempo, debo destacar de manera especial a aquellos que han trabajado incansablemente en todos los detalles que han conformado la totalidad del evento. La Dra. Diana Thorburn como Presidenta del Programa ha sido pródiga y cuidadosa en su papel, Annette Insanally como Presidenta Local a quien he llegado a conocer, respetar y quien me ha sorprendido por sus habilidades administrativas y de organización, la Srta. Joy Cooblal Secretaria/Tesorera de la CSA y la Sr t a. M ic hell e Seer aj (Asiste nt e de Investigación, UWI St. Augustine) quien asistió a los miembros de la Secretaría en St. Augustine, han sido todas colegas valiosas e insustituibles; el Profesor Anton Allahar, quien ha dejado un espacio difícil de llenar por su trabajo alegre pero profundo como Ex presidente y quien ha continuado este año ofreciendo el beneficio de su experiencia; así como lo ha hecho el Dr. Dwaine Plaza, Presidente del Programa (2007/8). Los Dres. Samuel Furé (Cuba) y Maggie Shrimpton (México) que se encargaron de los asuntos relativos a las donaciones para viajes y lograron traer a algunos de ustedes acá, mientras que la Profesora Jocelyne Guilbault y el próximo Presidente de la CSA Linden Lewis han asegurado que tendremos elecciones libres y justas para seleccionar al próximo Ejecutivo. Invitamos a todos los miembros abonados que se aseguren de emitir su voto. Cada año también dependemos y celebramos nuestros Autores, Impresores y Publicistas quienes han llegado a ser parte integrante de nuestros eventos, y por la organización de este aspecto de nuestro programa y del evento Anual de Lanzamiento de Libros agradecemos a los Dres. Carolle Charles y Outar. La conferencia de la CSA nos une a todos en un terreno común, a pesar de las diferencias con muchos matices. Queríamos organizar un programa de conferencia que comprendemos comienza más temprano que de costumbre. Y a pesar de la carga de trabajo para aquellos que han tenido que dedicar noches enteras, hemos incluido espacio de tiempo libre a lo largo del programa para aquellos que deseen tomarse una siesta, o cumplir con un compromiso en otras esferas donde se producen varios y valiosos intercambios en la CSA - en el internet café que hemos recreado en el Hilton mezannine, así como en las cuidadosamente espaciadas recepciones y actividades que nos permita tener tiempo para un discurrir de ideas más fluido y placentero. Para aquellos que vivirán la experiencia de Jamaica por primera vez, o que lo harán por medio de los ojos de la CSA, espero que esta conferencia les resulte productiva, divertida e inspiradora.

ANNUAL CONFERENCE OF THE CARIBBEAN STUDIES ASSOCIATION

MESSAGE DE LA PRESIDENTE
her membres du CSA, à vous nouveaux CCCCcvenus parmi nous, et à tous ceux dont le soutien a permis la réalisation du programme de cette année, au nom du Conseil exécutif et du Conseil consultatif, je vous souhaite la bienvenue à la fois à la 34ème Conférence de l'Association des études caribéennes, et à la Jamaïque. Nous avons hâte de saluer les vieux amis mais aussi d'inviter les nouveaux participants et membres à rejoindre cette famille élargie qui compte maintenant plus de 1000 membres. Venir à une conférence de CSA et joindre les rangs de cette Association, c'est déjà s'engager pour la réalisation d'un des nombreux buts, celui de la poursuite du développement de cette Région et le bien-être de ses ressortissants. Dans le même esprit, je tiens à rendre hommage aux 33 présidents et aux nombreux membres du conseil exécutif qui ont précédé l'équipe de cette année qui est soucieuse de mener à bien la conférence et de porter CSAvers un nouveau terme. En choisissant la Jamaïque cette année, le choix du site étant une des prérogatives du Président durant son mandat d'un an, j'ai attiré les membres vers mon deuxième pays dans la Caraïbe. Le thème de la conférence « Mettre la Caraïbe au cœur des études caribéennes » a d'abord vu le jour sous la forme d'une idée persistante qui, durant toute une décennie, a refusé de se taire. Bien que CSA en tant qu'association découle de l'initiative d'universitaires basés en Amérique du Nord, je me sentais de plus en plus soucieuse des avantages que pourraient en retirer les sociétés caribéennes qui accueillaient la conférence chaque année. En quoi ces sociétés bénéficientelles, de ces invasions annuelles, qui pour réussir, mobilisent le temps des comités organisateurs, et la participation financière publique et privée. Et puis, il y avait aussi le terme même d'« Etudes caribéennes », qui, croit-on, va de soi, comme s'il n'était pas lui-même passé par trois décennies de c hang ement s d' or ient at ion et d ' int ér êt disciplinaires. En guise de commentaire face au thème choisi, Bhoendradatt Tewarie (Vice Président chargé de la planification, UWI) s'est demandé "quel impact les décennies d'existence

C

des Etudes caribéennes ont-elles eu sur la Caraïbe? Qu'est-ce que les réflexions, les discussions et les écrits ont fait pour la Caraïbe ? » Le vent tourne pour la Caraïbe, et cela doit nous interpeler – au centre de tous les intérêts il y a quelques siècles, la Caraïbe a doucement glissé vers l'obsolescence sur la scène occidentale hémisphérique, fait que deux jours de Sommet des Amériques ne peut pas facilement contrebalancer – nous sommes des petits acteurs sur une grande scène. Dans le monde du savoir et de l'édition, les marches caribéens sont minuscules et ne présentent que peu d'intérêt pour les gros éditeurs dont la survie dépend des ventes de livres et de connaissance. Ainsi, quand Diana Thorburn, chercheuse jamaïcaine à l'Université des West Indies, responsable de la programmation de la conférence cette année, a eu l'idée du slogan qui est par la suite devenu le thème, nous nous étions déjà engagées, en tant que membres de longue date de CSA, à faire de ces questions le pivot des discussions de la conférence. La Jamaïque était l'un des endroits les plus appropriés pour cela, de par son passé de premier campus de UWI, et grâce au soutien total du Professeur Gordon Shirley, Principal du Campus de Mona, et d'Annette Insanally, Directrice du Centre Amérique Latine-Caraïbe qui dirige aussi notre comité organisateur sur place. Quand on y ajoute l'appui continu de Hamid Ghany, Doyen de la Faculté des sciences sociales qui a accueilli le Secrétariat de CSA pendant les quatre dernières années, le Principal du campus de Saint-Augustine, le Professeur Clement Sankat, les Vice Présidents en charge de la Recherche et des Etudes de second et troisième cycle, les professeurs Waynbe Hunte et Ronald Young, nous pouvons sans aucun doute témoigner du partenariat de l'Université des West Indies pour la conférence de cette année, ainsi que de notre intérêt commun à voir l'enseignement supérieur mettre à plat les idées que suscite ce theme. Nous avons quasiment croulé sous les soumissions d'articles de tous genres cette année,

ANNUAL CONFERENCE OF THE CARIBBEAN STUDIES ASSOCIATION

MESSAGE DE LA PRESIDENTE
et nous les avons répartis en séances fléchées qui devraient nous permettre de faire de bonnes affaires dans cette grande foire de tables rondes, séances plénières et prestations qui vous attendent dans ce programme. Nous avons tenté d'éviter que les trois plénières qui traitent du thème principal de la conférence se chevauchent, afin de faciliter l'entière participation des membres. Nous avons invité, à titre d'expert en résidence pour la semaine, le professeur George Lamming, auteur caribéen de grande renommée et nous avons créé une piste dédiée au film et à la performance scénique qui mène à un espace alternatif dans le Jonkanoo Lounge de l'Hotel Hilton où s'expriment les autres langues de la production culturelle – arts visuels, danse, oralité et musique. L'association tourne grâce à son Conseil exécutif, ses Conseil consultatif, Secrétariat et membres qui s'engagent et tiennent leurs promesses. Je remercie chacun d'entre vous qui aura contribué à faire de ce programme une réussite– la liste complète apparait dans le programme. Je me dois toutefois de porter une attention toute particulière à ceux qui ont travaillé sans défatiguer aux détails qui ont fini par former un tout. Diana Thorburn qui a rempli son rôle de responsable de la programmation avec une gentillesse sans limites, Annette Insanally, présidente du comite organisateur dont j'ai pu découvrir et respecter, non sans admiration, les talents de management et d'organisation, mesdemoiselles Joy Cooblal secrétaire/trésorière de l'AEC et Michelle Seeraj (Assistante de recherche, UWI Saint-Augustine) dont la contribution en tant que membre du Secrétariat et collègues fut inestimable et irremplaçable, d'autant plus que le bilan du professeur Anton Allahar était difficile à reproduire, et l'ancien président, jovial mais consciencieux a continué cette année de nous faire profiter de son expérience, de même que Dwaine Plaza, chef de la Programmation 2007/2008. Samuel Fure (Cuba) et Maggie Shrimpton (Mexique) se sont occupés des questions de bourses de voyage qui ont permis à nombre d'entre vous d'être ici pendant que professeur Jocelyne Guilbault et le nouveau Président Linden Lewis ont fait en sorte l'élection du prochain Conseil exécutif soit libre et juste. Nous invitons tous les membres à jour de leurs cotisations à user de leur droit de vote. Chaque année, nous dépendons de, et honorons les auteurs, imprimeries et éditeurs qui sont devenus réguliers chez nous, et pour l'organisation de cet aspect de notre programme ainsi que la foire aux livres annuelle, nous remercions Carolle Charles et Lisa Outar. La conférence de l'AEC nous rassemble tous autour d'un point commun, malgré les différences et les nuances. Nous avons voulu concevoir un programme qui, nous en convenons, démarre tôt dans la journée, ce qui n'est pas dans nos habitudes. Bien que cela soit éprouvant pour ceux qui veillent tard, nous avons aménagé des moments libres dans la programmation pour faire une sieste, si vous en décidez ainsi, ou pour se rencontrer dans d'autres sphères ou les nombreux et précieux échanges de CSA prennent place – dans notre cyber-face dans la mezzanine du Hilton, et au cours des réceptions et autres activités savamment placées dans le programme pour nous permettre d'échanger et de mêler les idées. Pour ceux d'entre vous dont c'est la première expérience en Jamaïque, ou la première fois à travers l'AEC, j'espère que cette conférence se révélera productive, agréable et riche en inspiration.

ANNUAL CONFERENCE OF THE CARIBBEAN STUDIES ASSOCIATION

PROGRAMME HIGHLIGHTS CSA 2009 – MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIR
afford to miss! We are pleased to have four rich graduate student-specific activities this conference. Our regular graduate student breakfast will be next door at the Courtleigh Hotel on Wednesday morning. We also have a tenure panel on Tuesday morning, and our regular 'finishing the PhD & getting a job' panel on Thursday morning. Also on Wednesday we are holding a series of leadership and grant-writing workshops specifically targeting graduate students and newly minted PhDs (but open to everyone). Our efforts to further CSA's links with NGOs and organisations that are policy- and policyresearch-oriented have resulted in a healthy selection of not-strictly-academic panels and activities this year. Monday morning features the first of our policyrelated discussions at CSA 2009 with a UNESCOled discussion on perhaps the first question that arises when thinking about relationships between academic and policy organisations: what is the role of the dialogue between researchers and policy makers? On Wednesday morning the “IC3” group from SUNY Albany will stage a discussion on climate change in the Caribbean. Thursday is a big day for our policy-related panels. The Inter-American Foundation, an independent agency of the US government that provides grants to nongovernmental and community-based organisations in Latin America and t he Car ibbean, will be staging a panel/roundtable. The Caribbean Policy Research Institute, the newly established policy think tank that is making waves across the region, will present the findings of one of its many exciting research projects, also on Thursday morning. On Thursday afternoon, the Environment and Sustainability group will hold its second annual CSA panel. The Washington-based think tanks will also stage a roundtable discussing a topic that's always of interest to CSA members – the Cuba-US relationship. Finally, the plenary on Friday morning featuring the OAS Deputy

elcome at last to CSA 2009. I say at last because the programme as you now have it is the result not only of months of work in sorting and organising submissions and featured activities, but has been in the hearts and minds of President Pat and myself from back in 2007 when she became vice-president and I was programme chair-designate. We have, since then, been in one long and intricate conversation about the “type” of conference we wanted to put on, and, then, actually working on putting our ideas into reality. Our principal vision was, of course, a diverse, interesting and organised conference. But beyond or within that, we especially wanted to continue and broaden three newer trends at CSA: namely, promoting and featuring films and performance, graduate student-specific activities, and furthering CSA's links with NGOs and policy organisations. While every panel is special and interesting – and I know because I read each and every single abstract! – I would like to here bring to your attention some of what I will call the programme highlights, being those panels or activities thatreflect our goal in diversifying the CSA programme for this year: First, the entire film/performance track. This was the brainchild of President Pat, and I am especially proud that we not only have a completely full film and performance schedule, but that it is featuring a wonderfully diverse mix of documentaries, feature films, archival films, and student films. Further, we made a special attempt to attract performance panels for the first time to CSA. I invite you to view the entire film/performance track schedule and see if there's anything you can

ANNUAL CONFERENCE OF THE CARIBBEAN STUDIES ASSOCIATION

PROGRAMME HIGHLIGHTS CSA 2009 – MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIR
Secretary General represents the continued strengthening of CSA's relationship with that organisation. Politics and society A good proportion of CSA's programme is usually devoted to issues of politics and society. This year there are a few panels that we think take particularly interesting angles on our Caribbean space that we would like to highlight. The President's plenary on Tuesday morning “kicks off” the conference theme on taking charge of our intellectual agenda, a topic near and dear to the heart of President Pat (and many of the rest of us). Our scholar in residence for CSA 2009, George Lamming, will participate in a roundtable discussion on the place of journals in the making, and remaking, of the study of the Caribbean on Thursday morning, and on Thursday afternoon David Lewis has brought together what he calls the “masters” of Caribbean studies to share their wisdom with the rest of us. A reflection on the thirty-year commemoration of the Grenada Revolution and a discussion of its legacy in the Caribbean, will take place on Friday morning. Networking CSA has long been proud of its informal links with other related organisations that promote Caribbean studies, development, art and culture. This year we are happy to have expanded our social networks in this regard by being the venue of the newly-revitalised Haitian Studies Association meet-and-greet event on Wednesday evening, open to all CSA participants. We have partnered with the Institute of Jamaica, the oldest cultural institution in the English-speaking Caribbean, to offer on lunchtime on Wednesday a cultural outing comprising a visit to the IOJ with lunch and a guided tour of the Xaymaca-Spanish Jamaica exhibit. On Wednesday afternoon we continue what we hope will become a CSA tradition with the NGO Tour, this year hosted by the Area Youth Foundation, a dynamic little Jamaican NGO with big plans for capturing and developing the creative talents of Jamaican youth and realising Jamaica's potential as a world cultural superpower, at the same time as channelling young people's creative energy away from violence and criminal activity. Finally, we are also pleased to host a number of members and panels of the Masculinities Network, which comprises academics, activists and other professionals who undertake research in Caribbean Masculinities, working in tandem with the Working Group on Caribbean Masculinities, Gender Equity and Social Policy to create gendersensitive policy interventions and programmes that work to promote gender equity, and decrease gender-based violence and male social exclusion in the region. This is just a sample of the richness and variety of our programme this year. With over 150 panels to choose from, we are sure you will not be lacking for a single moment of stimulation and inspiration this week. We hope you will gain as much from CSA 2009 as we have in preparing this programme for this year's conference.

PANEL J29: CULTURAL STUDIES: INTERROGATIONS, SHIFTS, CENTRES: LOCATING OUR CARIBBEAN IN CARIBBEAN STUDIES
Postgraduate cultural studies students at UWI Cave Hill continue to engage a practitioner approach to the deployment of cultural dynamics in Caribbean space. In gathering epistemological knowledge, panellists present congruencies and discrepancies that elucidate previous notions of cultural studies, locating their experience within the realm of the broader network of academia. These critiques disturb popular assumptions around dance, music, theatre, sports and skin colour; they offer no solutions or answers, but reaffirm the Caribbean as a site for rich, complex and complicated articulations of power and identity in their respective fields. Organiser/Chair: John Hunte, University of the West Indies, Cave Hill, Barbados. johnhunte@caribsurf.com 1. Presenter: Stefan Walcott, musician, PhD cultural studies student, University of the West Indies, Cave Hill, Barbados. hstefanwalcott@gmail.com "Kaiso vs. Soca equals Bacchanal!” Shifting Boundaries within Calypso and Soca Analyses the shifting boundaries within calypso and soca, highlighting the complex nature boundary in Barbadian music discourse.
