Conference Notice: Conference on Caliban's Reason: 20 Years Strong

Conference Theme:

“Caliban, Knowledge Societies, Caribbean and Global African Development”

Broadly conceived, this Conference will celebrate the milestone of Caliban’s Reason as an awakening of the Philosophical genius of the Caribbean peoples and subalterns globally, both in the struggles, the breakthroughs and the visionary pathways that this region has been able to engineer for peoples of the region and global marginalized, dispossessed and disempowered. In this regard, the development of African Philosophies, African Diaspora Philosophies and other non-European Philosophies will be celebrated in their liberating efforts, as antecedents, antithesis and dissolution mechanisms to Greco-European pretensions to singularity of humanity. Discourses and interrogations around such aspects of the intellectual histories, developments of civilizations, sciences, technologies, religions of humans in ancient Americas, Africa and the Caribbean post-plantation, post-emancipation, post-colonial and within the contexts of globalized hegemonies and resistances are welcome
