CARIBBEAN PHILOSOPHICAL ASSOCIATION

INAUGURAL CONFERENCE: "SHIFTING THE GEOGRAPHY OF REASON"
University of the West Indies, Cave Hill, May 19-22
, 2004

CALL FOR PAPERS

Under this heading, the Caribbean Philosophical Association will take as its organizing theme the implications of the rise of Africana and other third world philosophies for geographical notions, metaphors, and assumptions that have long been associated with modern concepts of philosophical reason.  What distinct forms have the geographies of Africa, Latin America or India given to reason?  On the Caribbean home front, the rise of Africana philosophy has crystallized an awareness of Caribbean philosophy as a discourse that links reason to four different geographies: Africa, Asia, Europe, and the Caribbean itself.

In the spirit of this geographical interrogation of reason, we invite the submission of papers on the texts and practices of Native Caribbean, Afro-Caribbean, Indo-Caribbean, Euro-Caribbean, African, Latin-American, African-American, Indian, and European philosophies as these have all affected the practice of reason in the Caribbean.

In keeping with this focus, we encourage papers and panels on topics such as:

  • New Geographies of Reason

  • Race and the Geography of Reason

  • African and Afro-Caribbean Philosophy

  • Afro-Caribbean and African-American Philosophy

  • Fanon and Caribbean Existentialism

  • Kincaid  and Africana Existentialism

  • Indian and Africana Phenomenology

  • Logic and Race in Caribbean Philosophy

  • V.S. Naipaul and Caribbean Poeticism

  • Sylvia Wynter and Africana Philosophy

  • José Martí and Caribbean Historicism

  • Semiotics and Postcontinental Reason

  • Edouard Glissant and Caribbean Aesthetics

  • Bob Marley and the Philosophy of Music

  • Science and Caribbean poeticism
