CPA Summer School Application

Deadline: March 31


The Application

Please complete the Application Form and submit it by March 31st before midnight EST.

Who Should Apply

While our target audience for the CPA Summer School at UCONN is graduate students at all stages, advanced undergraduates, faculty, and independent scholars are also very welcome to participate.

For members of the CPA, philosophy is conceived, not as an isolated academic discipline, but as rigorous theoretical reflection about fundamental problems faced by humanity. Understood in this way, Caribbean philosophy is a transdisciplinary form of interrogation informed by scholarly knowledges as well as by practices and artistic expressions that elucidate fundamental questions that emerge in contexts of discovery,conquest, racial, gender, and sexual domination, genocide, dependency, and exploitation as well as freedom, emancipation, and decolonization. Reflection about these areas often appears in philosophical texts, but also in a plethora of other genres such as literature, music, and historical writings. The CPA invites theoretical engagements with all such questions, thematic areas, and genres with emphasis on any given discipline or field, but with a common interest in shifting the geography of reason,by which we mean approaching the Caribbean and the Global South in general as zones of sustainable practices and knowledges.
