SHARE 8 ANTHROPOLOGISTS TO TALK AT Y. ON CARIBBEAN’S COLONIAL LEGACY

Eight internationally known anthropologists whose work reveal the nature of life in the Caribbean will visit Brigham Young University Monday and Tuesday, Dec. 7 and 8, for a conference on "Ethnicity, Ideology and the Colonial Legacy of the Caribbean."

The scholars will present papers on modern society and the historical roots of each of the four major colonial traditions - British, Spanish, French, and Dutch - in the Caribbean."One of the major projects of the BYU Columbus Quincentennial Committee has been the organization of an academic conference on the nature of modern-day life in the Caribbean and the linkages of today's patterns to the colonial past," said John Hawkins, chairman of the department of anthropology and coordinator of the conference.

The department of anthropology, in association with the David M. Kennedy Center and the BYU Honors and General Education Program, is sponsoring the event, which will take place each day in the Kennedy Center Conference Room (238 HRCB) from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
