This panel of leading scholars and cultural heritage professionals from both Jamaica and Trinidad & Tobago will discuss how galleries, museums, archives and libraries, and the cultural heritage sector generally, are marking and thinking through this moment of 60 years of independence from British rule. How are these celebrations different from 50th commemorations a decade ago? How do these institutions see themselves in regard to education, information, culture and knowledge at this juncture? What visions of/for these nations are being articulated in official discourse? And is this discourse being problematized, or even resisted in other spaces?
