Negotiating the African Presence: Rastafari Livity and Scholarship Rastafari Conference 2010


August 17 - 20, 2010

University of the West Indies Mona

Overview

2010 will mark 50 years since the "Report on The Rastafari Movement in Kingston, Jamaica" was first published by the then University College of the West Indies. The Report, authored by M.G. Smith, Roy Augier and Rex Nettleford, validated the University's sense of its social responsibility and remains one its most successful monographs, having gone through eight reproductions without change in form or content, becoming a most highly referenced document on the Movement.

2010 also marks the 80th anniversary of the Rastafari Movement itself, which has grown from a few visionaries struck by the coronation of the Ethiopian Emperor Haile Selassie I in November 1930, into a vital force in reconstructing and elevating the African Presence in the Western landscape. In recognition of these two anniversaries, and on the birthday of Pan-African champion, the Honourable Marcus Mosiah Garvey, the Institute of Caribbean Studies announces the inaugural Rastafari Studies Conference to be held August 17 - 20, 2010 at the Mona Campus of the University of the West Indies, under the Joint Chairmanship of Vice-Chancellor Emeritus, Prof. Rex Nettleford and Prof. Emeritus, Sir Roy Augier.
