Anida Yoeu Ali published in “Turning Tides: Caribbean Intersections in the Americas and Beyond”


IAS faculty member Anida Yoeu Ali has published in the edited volume, Turning Tides: Caribbean Intersections in the Americas and Beyond published by Ian Randle Publishers. The book brings together an eclectic collection of 19 essays, conversations and reports intended to reach beyond regions and compartmentalized disciplines. The book hopes to broaden the horizons of what we call  ‘The Caribbean’ both geographically and intellectually. The collection chronicles scholarly research and creative approaches presented at the conference of the same name held in February 2016 in Trinidad and Tobago.

The international conference co-sponsored by Trinity College and The University of  the West Indies–St. Augustine Campus focused on wide-reaching and transdisciplinary research about the instabilities, changes, developments, perspectives and future trends which intersect the cultures and societies bordered by the Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea. As highlighted in the book, “an outstanding feature presentation included a conversation between renowned artists, Trinidad mas-man artist Peter Minshall and Cambodian American performance artist Anida Yoeu Ali, moderated by Trinidadian Christopher Cozier.”
