Island Studies International Conference "Creativity, Ingenuity and Practice"

University of the Highlands and Islands, Shetland, Scotland June 22-25 2022

Call for Abstracts

Islands have long been centres of creativity, ingenuity, and innovation. This conference seeks to share knowledge of and celebrate facets of island creativity. We invite proposals for papers, panels, posters, roundtables and (creative) workshops that highlight the many ways island societies put their manifold creative skills into practice, from their distinct responses to political, environmental, economic and social challenges, to the development of island creative economies and the promotion of community well-being.

In line with this theme, we welcome submissions on the following topics:

  • Creative Economy on Islands
  • Experience of the Island-based Creative Practitioner
  • Creative Entrepreneurship on Islands
  • Creative Approaches to Island Political, Environmental, Economic and Social Challenges
  • Creative Approaches to Sustainable Island Tourism
  • Other themes relating to islands studies will also be considered

ISIC, the annual conference of the Small Island Cultures Research Initiative (SICRI), will be hosted by the Centre for Island Creativity (CIC).
