This filmed panel features papers which focus both on James' relationship with the radical Caribbean tradition, but also on the wider historical and political contexts within which he worked, and to which he contributed. The papers & speakers are as follows:
1) West Indian Through and Through and Very British: C. L. R. James' Beyond a Boundary and Coloniality in theorizing Caribbean independence-presented by Minkah Makalani, University of Texas (Austin). 2) The Boundaries of Publication: The Untold Story of Beyond a Boundary. Presented by Roy McCree, University of the West Indies. The session was chaired by Ben Carrington. This programme was filmed by WORLDbytes volunteers at The Beyond A Boundary Conference held at The University Of Glasgow in May 2013.
