Caribbean Series

Series Editor: Sophie Maríñez
The Caribbean Series at Brill offers monographs and edited volumes by intellectuals from academe and the public sphere focusing on, and engaging with, the Caribbean as place, as idea, as theoretical corpus. This geographical region includes obvious Caribbean spaces across languages from within the Caribbean archipelago, but also more broadly, it encompasses 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 with a regional, pan-Caribbean approach 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 neo-liberal policies, among others.

In addition to original work in English, it proposes translations of high-quality research monographs originally published in a language other than English and/or out of print. Manuscripts are subject to a double-blind peer-review process to ensure scholarly breadth, rigor, and excellence. Brill’s long-standing distribution network among academic libraries and conferences around the world guarantees a wide dissemination of its titles.

The Caribbean Series was established by the KITLV (Royal Netherlands Institute of Southeast Asian and Caribbean Studies). In collaboration with the KITLV, Brill also publishes the esteemed New West Indian Guide.

Authors are cordially invited to submit proposals and/or full manuscripts by email to the publisher Uri Tadmor.
