SALISES Talks 2015-2016
This year the “Talks”, which are being organised as “Brown Bag Events”, are being organised under the broad theme of “Think Responsibly.”
In keeping with this theme and the expected audience, presenters are being asked to offer insights into the ways in which their work addresses a current socio-cultural, political, economic, or policy issue in the region.
The presentations may either speak to an area of recent research or be a rethinking of a past body of work. Also, presentations do not have to be completed projects; they may be work in progress and a testing ground for developing ideas.
It is our continuous intention that presenters will engage not only with their academic colleagues but also with the non-specialist public and various interest groups.
SALISES Developmental Talks 2014-2015
The Sir Arthur Lewis Institute relaunched its yearly seminar series, under the theme “SALISES Developmental Talks
.” This was in homage to the legacy of the St. Lucian Nobel Laureate, Sir Arthur Lewis, after whom the Institute has been named. In fact, the renaming of the seminar series initiated the Institute’s recognition of the work and the celebration of the centenary of the birth of this tremendous Caribbean son – Sir Arthur Lewis.
The series of talks, which were presented by a number of academics from a number of Faculties at the Cave Hill campus of the UWI, covered a range of issues and were presented under the broad theme of “Getting Real with Research: Insights for Today’s Caribbean.”
It was our intention that presenters would engage not only with their academic colleagues but also with the non-specialist public and various interest groups. In keeping with the theme and the expected audience, presenters were asked to offer insights into the ways in which their work addresses a current social, economic or policy issue in the region.
The SALISES Seminar Series is a forum for academics and/or practitioners from within and outside the University of the West Indies to present recent or ongoing scholarly research. Presenters benefit from the opportunity to engage in debate with academics in their particular field of study. Topics include any subject within the social sciences but preference is given to policy oriented work.
