UVI will host the “Navigating the VI’s Cultural, Economic, and Political Spaces Symposium” which will be held on April 8. The purpose of this symposium is to provide an opportunity to consider the identity of the Virgin Islands of the United States, from various platforms and positions, as we conclude the 100th year since the transfer of ownership from Denmark to the United States of America.
A registration fee to be determined will be requested from faculty and the general public. However, students only have to show their student I.D. to not be charged.
Researchers, scholars, and community activists are invited to present talks and papers that examine the topic of identity, in and of the Virgin Islands, across multiple perspectives, including sociological, psychological, economic, fine and performance art, literary and political.
