Tashanna Walker presented a paper at the Third Postgraduate Conference on Caribbean In/securities and creativity (CARISCC) run through the University of Birmingham on January 15, 2018.

This Leverhulme Trust-supported interdisciplinary research network focuses on the interactions between two everyday arenas that are rarely summoned together: the precariousness of insecure livelihoods and neighbourhoods, and the negotiation of risk in cultural production, or creativity.

The Caribbean region is a crucible for everyday negotiations between security and insecurity (in/security). Indeed, Caribbean people deploy their creative energy to live with the everyday effects of poverty, inequality and violence, whilst generating globally influential creativity in political, literary, and dance cultures.
