A Hundred Years of Migration (1917-2017): Stories of Caribbean Exile and Diaspora

Saturday, September 30, 2017,

Global & International Studies Building

With mass migration changing the political landscape of nations from Europe to Central America, this conference studies the cultural, political, and economic impact of the movement of people between North America and its geographically closest region, the Caribbean. These migrants have come to the U.S. propelled by special circumstances, yet their stories can tell us something about the long history of forced and unforced displacement and its effects on nation-states, both on the sending and the receiving side. This conference will bring together scholars and policy experts to study the long-term effects of migration, exile, and diaspora cultures on the Caribbean as well as the United States and Canada. Organized by the Center for Latin American & Caribbean Studies at IU. Visit the conference website for more information.
