CALL FOR PAPERS
“Lives in Transition: Negotiating the Currents in a Changing World”

The 4th Biennial Conference of the IABA Americas Chapter

The Department of Literatures in English

University of the West Indies, Mona

Kingston, Jamaica

June 13-15, 2019

The conference conveners invite papers that explore means by which auto/biographical subjects explore lives ‘in transition’ and/or in the process of ‘transitioning.’ How do life narratives explore the kinds of adjustments, challenges, and negotiations made in ‘transitional’ periods? How do we as life narrative scholars, teachers, and practitioners metabolize and incorporate ideas of transitioning in our approaches to our respective disciplines and methodologies?

Possible topics include how these transitions may have been brought on by trauma, natural disasters, wars, referendums and other legislative changes, social policies, scandals, illnesses, medical procedures, body politics, gendered lives, migrations, or the relocations of Indigenous and other communities. We are also interested in papers that explore life, death, kinship, consciousness, and mourning in the ongoing aftermath of violence, which Black cultural studies scholar Christina Sharpe encourages us to imagine, in her work on slavery’s legacies, as living “in the wake.”

Papers addressing all genres of life narratives (written, visual, performed, multimodal, interdisciplinary, digital, etc.) are welcome.

We invite abstracts of 250-300 words accompanied by brief biographies (no more than 100 words) on topics that are not limited to, but may include:

Citizenship and records
Refugees, points of entry/departure
Health, rehabilitation, and recovery
Rites of passage
Legislation
Translation
Sexuality and advocacy
Family and generational conflict
Transgender lives
Extradition, detention, and deportation
Embodied politics
Teaching as transitional tool: methodology, internship, practicum
Discursive practices: movement, migration and diaspora
Constructing and deconstructing gender

Please send abstracts and biographies via email to [email protected] by December 1, 2018.

CHAMADA DE TRABALHOS

“Vidas em transição: Conciliando as correntezas em um mundo em mutação”

IV Conferência Bianual da IABA – Sucursal Américas

Departamento de Literaturas – Língua Inglesa

Universidade das Índias Ocidentais, Mona

Kingston, Jamaica

13 a 15 de junho de 2019

Os organizadores da conferência convidam à submissão de trabalhos que investiguem as formas através das quais temas auto/biográficos lidam com as vidas “em transição” ou em processo de “transição”. Como as narrativas de vida exploram os tipos de ajustes, desafios e negociações feitos em períodos de “transição”? Como nós, pesquisadores, professores e praticantes de narrativas de vida metabolizamos e incorporamos ideias de transição nas abordagens de nossas respectivas disciplinas e metodologias?

Os possíveis tópicos incluem as formas como essas transições podem ser advindas do trauma, de desastres naturais, guerras, plebiscitos ou outras mudanças legislativas, políticas sociais, escândalos, enfermidades, procedimentos médicos, corpo político, questões de gênero, migrações ou deslocamentos indígenas ou de outras comunidades. Estamos também interessados em trabalhos que explorem temas como a vida, morte, afinidades, consciência e luto como consequência da violência, de acordo com o pensamento da pesquisadora de Estudos Culturais Negros, Christina Sharpe, que nos incentiva a imaginar o viver como um estado de vigília, assim como ilustrado em sua pesquisa sobre os legados da escravidão. Serão também aceitos para análise temas como manifestações de triunfos políticos ou pessoais, conquistas e celebrações.

Trabalhos que lidem com quaisquer formas de narrativas de vida (escrita, visual, performática, multimodal, interdisciplinar, digital, etc.) serão bem-vindos.

Convidamos à submissão de resumos de 250 a 300 palavras, juntamente com uma breve biografia (no máximo 100 palavras), sobre os seguintes tópicos, mas não limitados a eles:

Cidadania e registros

Refugiados, pontos de entrada e saída

Saúde, reabilitação e recuperação

Ritos de passagem

Legislação

Tecnologias de transição

Sexualidade e militância

Família e conflitos geracionais

Vidas transgêneras

Políticas do corpo/no corpo

Ensino como um instrumento de transição: metodologia, estágios e prática

Práticas discursivas: movimento, migração e diáspora

Construindo e desconstruindo o gênero

Favor enviar resumos e biografias por e-mail para [email protected] até 1 de dezembro de 2018.

4 Conferencia Bienal del Capítulo Americano IABA

Departamento de Literaturas en Lengua Inglesa

Universidad de las Indias Occidentales, Mona
Kingston, Jamaica
Junio 13-15, 2019

Los organizadores de la conferencia convocan propuestas que estudien los métodos usados por sujetos auto/biográficos para explorar sus vidas ‘en transición’ y/o procesos de ‘transición.’ ¿Cómo se exploran este tipo de cambios, retos, y negociaciones hechas en periodos de transición a través de narrativas de vida? ¿Cómo podemos metabolizar e incorporar ideas de transición en nuestras respectivas disciplinas y metodologías como investigadores, profesores y escritores de auto/biografía?

Posibles temas incluyen el estudio de los procesos que causan estas transiciones, como traumas, desastres naturales, guerras, referéndums y otros cambios legislativos, leyes sociales, escándalos, enfermedades, procedimientos médicos, políticas del cuerpo, vidas de género, migraciones, o traslados de comunidades indígenas u otras comunidades. También estamos interesados en propuestas que exploren la vida, muerte, afinidad, consciencia, y luto en secuelas de violencia siguiendo a la investigadora de estudios culturales afroamericanos, Christina Sharpe, quien nos anima a imaginar estas repercusiones como vivas, “en vigilia.”

Se invita a enviar propuestas que aborden todos los géneros de narrativas de vida (escritas, visuales, teatrales, multimodales, interdisciplinarias, digitales, etc).

nytimes.com The Caribbean island of Barbuda felt the full force of Hurricane Irma. Now, a struggle to control its future is underway. On one side are Barbudans who own the land and want to preserve their unique way of life — on the other, the government and foreign investors who see opportunity in disaster.

In push for non-energy foreign investment, Trinidad announces rebrand

In push for non-energy foreign investment, Trinidad announces rebrand

Posted 07/19/2013 by InvesTT
If this were a movie, this would be a job for Spielberg, Scorsese or the Coen brothers. One of the smallest countries in Latin America and the Caribbean has become one of the most prosperous. By thinking big. By managing its affairs and resources well. So well, huge companies like BP and Microsoft want to do business there.

It is an amazing story that deserves to be told, and invesTT, Trinidad and Tobago’s national investment promotion agency, has just issued this RFP to give the best nation-branding experts in the world a chance to tell it.



This the story of how Trinidad has started to steer its economy away from oil and gas to develop other sectors like manufacturing and tourism. The long-term strategy is economic prosperity which is boosted by energy exports, not dependent on it.

It’s working.

But for some recent contraction brought on by the global economic crisis, Trinidad’s economy has thrived over the past decade.

The government is now focused on film, fashion, ship repair and transshipment, data storage, financial services and agribusiness—lucrative business opportunities it expects foreign investors will warm to given the country’s ideal location and access to North and South American markets.

How do you market a place like this? A place with such a “can-do” attitude, it has punched above its weight to become one of the largest exporters of methanol and ammonia in the world and the biggest supplier of liquefied natural gas to America.

How do you share the home of the liveliest Carnival on earth, with people who are looking for a good time and a good place to live and work?

Thinking big is the reason Trinidad holds the record for the smallest country to ever qualify for the World Cup.

“If your firm specialises in country branding or place marketing," says invesTT president Kelvin Mahabir, "this is an exciting challenge to make the world want what we have to offer.”

Is your branding agency up for the challenge?
