Caribbean Studies Association Conference

New CSA Conference Logo

Join us in celebrating the arrival of a new conference logo, an artistic representation by Philippe Dodard of our conference theme:  Caribbean Global Movements. Philippe Dodard who is a leading Haitian artist, Director of ENARTS and one of our Local Organizing Committee co-chairs, is  the artist on whose work the logo which we used initially was based. He has designed a new logo for this year’s CSA-Haiti 2016 conference.  The design layout of the conference banner was created by Haitian graphic artist Archangelo Celestin who works with the Department of Communications in Haiti which will create airport welcome banners and street flags with this image.

Please note as well that we have added Papimento in the languaging of the conference logo for the first time so that we have another representative Caribbean language ensuring the Dutch-speaking Caribbean is included, thanks to Guido Roger. The last logo was a portion of a mural at the Karibe Hotel which was the originally proposed site of the conference until it was pre-booked ahead of us by another organization. You will get a chance to see that full piece of art anyway since we will do our Cultural Night at the Karibe.  Thank you Philippe Dodard for this new logo which will be available to members as the Conference Poster which is normally included in the  conference  bags.
