The theme for the conference, Centring LBGT Experiences, is purposely broad; we consider this fitting for an inaugural conference that focuses on the lived realities and diverse ways in which LGBT people in the Caribbean experience love, respect, (in)tolerance and acceptance. We only ask two things:
1. That presenters begin with the presumption that LGBT people act, and are not just acted upon;
2. That the work focus on people living in the Caribbean, regardless of location or language.
We invite conference papers and roundtable proposals from individuals of any discipline as well as proposals for visual, musical and dramatic presentations or any other forms of artistic performance. We welcome academics, activists, journalists and contributors from any field.
Abstracts and proposals for papers and roundtables should be no more than 250 words and should list keywords.
Proposals for artistic presentations should also be no more than 250 words and state clearly the requirements for staging the work.
Abstracts and proposals should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by October 16, 2016.
