The provisional working title of this year's DJG conference is: "The Arrivants" – Jamaica and its culture of immigration.
Under the title "The Arrivants", the literary scholar Edward Kamau Brathwaite, who died in 2020 at the age of 90 and came from Barbados, presented a 3-part overall study of the emergence of Caribbean societies.
Brathwaite, who worked for many years at the UWI in Kingston and received many awards, showed in his work on the folk culture of slaves and the emergence of the Creole Society in Jamaica how modern Jamaica was shaped by the various African and European immigrant cultures.
