Worlding the Caribbean

DEADLINE:6 April 2021

Hyundai Tate Research Centre: Transnational (HTRC:T), University of the Arts London (UAL) and Transnational and Transcultural Arts and Culture Exchange (TrACE) are jointly organizing a symposium entitled “Consent not to be a single being: Worlding the Caribbean”, to be held in December 2021 at the Tate Museum in London.

The symposium takes the Caribbean and Caribbean thought as a starting point to reconsider global histories of art in the context of migration and environmental precarity. It draws on key concepts developed by Caribbean thinkers Édouard Glissant, Sylvia Wynter, and Stuart Hall to devise a guiding structure for the symposium: Creolisation and Wordliness, On Being Human as Praxis, and Closed and Open Identities.


Scholars and practitioners working on relevant topics.

Speakers should be available for both in-person and online/remote delivery of papers due to the changing guidelines on travel and congregation as well as for sustainability reasons.


For in-person participation, the speakers will be provided with economy/standard roundtrip travel tickets (to/from London) and lunch and dinner on symposium days. Accommodation is not covered by the organisers but logistic assistance can be provided upon request.

All speakers including online/remote participants will receive a modest honorarium.
