News and Announcements
Monday, February 06, 2023 12:17 PM

The Caribbean Series at Brill offers monographs and edited volumes by intellectuals from academe and the public sphere engaging the Caribbean as a place, as an idea, as a theoretical corpus. This corpus includes the Caribbean archipelago but also continental spaces in the Americas, such as Venezuela, Colombia, Central America, Mexico, and the United States, whose geopolitical proximity, historical ties, demographic components, and cultural traditions are essential for a broader, multi-layered understanding of the Caribbean, including its diasporas in Europe and the Western Hemisphere.

The series covers all topics in the arts, humanities, and social sciences, including interdisciplinary works addressing urgent issues such as decolonizing perspectives on modernity; diasporic identities; questions of representation; Afro-Caribbean traditions; indigeneity; race, class, gender, and LGBTQ+: migration and human rights; debts and reparations; the legacies of imperialism; and the effects of neoliberal policies, among others. For 2023, we are particularly interested in monographs or edited volumes on the visual arts, musical expressions, women intellectuals of any period, women political figures from the recent past, and studies in 21 st -century literature.

In addition to original work in English, the Caribbean Series welcomes proposals for translated versions of high-quality research monographs originally published in a language other than English. Authors are invited to submit proposals following these guidelines by email to the publisher, Uri Tadmor ([email protected]), or the Series Editor, Sophie Maríñez ([email protected]).
