We are pleased to invite you to attend Caribbean Crucible: Atlantic Migrations and the Making of the Modern World conference held at Columbia University Law School, Jerome Greene Hall Room 106 on April 14, 2023 from 10:00 am to 6:30pm EST

This conference asks how our understanding of history changes when we alter our frame of reference to see the Caribbean as the crucible of the modern West, as the progenitor of migrants who radically reshaped the political economies, laws, and cultures of the Atlantic world?

Join us as we explore these questions through the research of graduate student panelists and roundtable discussions. Panels and roundtables include: "African-Caribbean Migration and British Legal History," "Cultures in Transit, Africans in Diaspora," "Stories of Migration: Oral History Methods," and "Digitizing Diaspora, Mapping Migration." 

You can register for Caribbean Crucible using this link or the QR code on the attached flyer. All registered guests will receive a boxed lunch and are invited to join the speakers and presenters for a reception from 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm. All attendees must pre-register by April 12, 2023.

If you have any questions, please contact conference organizers Rochelle Malcolm (, Samuel Niu (, and Madison Ogletree (
