Caribbean Series

Series Editor: Alessandra Benedicty-Kokken, The City College of New York

Who: Authors from the Academe and/or the Public Sphere
With the objective of attracting intellectuals from throughout the Americas, Africa, Europe, and Asia, Brill is committed to publishing innovative work in Caribbean Studies. Our goal is to nurture and offer more visibility to the exciting transnational dialogues about the Caribbean that are already taking place amongst intellectuals who are active in either or both the academe and/or a more general public sphere: for example, scholars, professors, educators, artists, museum directors, policymakers, diplomats, activists, urban planners, architects, community organizers, environmentalists, or agronomists. We will publish monographs and edited volumes of 90,000 words or more written in English. However, we will welcome recommendations of translation projects as well.

What: Caribbean as Place and Concept
Our notion of “the Caribbean” is expansive. As such, the Caribbean Series seeks to provide a publication space for intellectual work that encompasses the vitality of the geographic regions that may be considered Caribbean: more obviously Caribbean spaces such as Cuba or Trinidad, but also places less stereotypically considered Caribbean, such as Louisiana or Surinam. This series also includes intellectual landscapes in which the Caribbean figures as essential: for example, discussions that consider European modernity and the Enlightenment, Black Europe and pan-Africanism, or present-day polemical societal questions dealing with human rights, humanitarian aid, migration, reparations, or the "right to the city."

The Publisher: Brill
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. Please direct all other correspondence to Assistant Editor Clovis Jaillet.
