Annual Meeting


53rd Annual ACH Conference, June 6-9, 2022
The University of the West Indies (UWI), Mona Campus

The ACH Executive Committee is pleased it announce that its 53rd Annual Conference of the Association of Caribbean Historians (ACH) will be held in Kingston, Jamaica from Sunday, Monday, June 6 to Thursday, June 9, 2022. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic and its impact on the Caribbean, the 53 rd ACH Conference will be held online.

The ACH welcomes this opportunity to work with local organisers in the Department of History and Archaeology at The University of the West Indies, Mona Campus. The ACH has chosen the overarching theme of “Resilience” for our 53rd Annual Conference.
We encourage participants to reflect on how the region’s resilience has been tested historically, and to share their research on the challenges and other developments which have shaped the Caribbean region. Our 53rd annual conference comes at an important period in Caribbean nationhood. The region enters a new phase in its independence trajectory with some of the English-speaking territories commemorating sixty years of independence. At the same time recent political turmoil, global health challenges and natural disasters have presented development challenges. The region continues to be highly dependent on international travel and communication and is highly vulnerable to external shocks in the global economy. In spite of the challenges individual states are actively re-shaping themselves and are at different phases of their independence journeys. In this context, the theme “Resilience” provides an important focal point.
Join us at the 53rd ACH conference as we explore the challenges and successes of the Caribbean region.
