Description

This one-day symposium is aimed at exploring contemporary narrative engagement (literary, visual, legal, sociological) with various transnational conversations which have, at their core, the Caribbean as a site of various forms of trafficking. Drawing on cases which bring into focus a series of economic, political, sexual and textual negotiations between the Caribbean and different locations within the global north and south, the symposium seeks to interrogate the structural and ideological mechanisms which have enabled forms of trafficking in and through the region. Through invigorating debates on transnational sexuality, migration and diaspora, human rights and cultural geography, it will also consider ‘trafficking’ in terms of the global circulation of new intimate, social, cultural and political knowledges.
