Caribbean Studies Series

Traditional, interdisciplinary, and comparative approaches to the politics, history, literature, philosophies, and popular culture of the Caribbean. Series editors: Natasha Barnes, Associate Professor of English at the University of Illinois at Chicago; Anton Allahar, Professor of Sociology at the University of Western Ontario.

Projects in this series will be scholarly works and edited volumes covering politics, history, literary criticism, anthropology, and more broadly cultural studies. In addition to these traditional fields, the series will encourage manuscripts that embody interdisciplinary and comparative approaches to understanding the Caribbean, its history, philosophies, its racial, ethnic, and national identities, political economies, literature, and popular culture including, but not limited to, visual arts, music, religion, and folklore. The series seeks works offering new approaches to the study of migration, diaspora formation, theater, dance and pageantry, gender, sexuality, and history, both written and oral. It also welcomes new critical and biographical works revealing the lives and thoughts of leading Caribbean figures past and present.
