David Scott | Michael Manley's Styles of Radical Will

9:00 AM - 5:00 PM
Rm 1008 Humanities, Stony Brook University, Stony Brook, NY 11794

The conference will examine the changing modes and meanings of time, temporality (or time’s passing) and futurity in Caribbean cultural production from the fifteenth century to the present. It will bring together a cross-disciplinary and inter-hemispheric group of scholars to explore the Caribbean as a crucial space of time-making, calibration and reinvention. The conference will also provide a platform to convene around the current emergency in the region, where the response to natural disasters entails a recourse to both colonial imaginaries and narratives and twenty-first century technocratic discourses of expertise and efficiency.
