H-Caribbean is an H-Net network sponsored by the Association of Caribbean Historians. This network seeks to overcome the linguistic, political, and geographic fragmentation that has traditionally characterized the field and region; provide access to debates and discussions on Caribbean studies; act as a resource to academics teaching and researching in associated fields; and reinforce the growing awareness of the region as an important and rich area for further research and study.
The American Antiquarian Society (AAS) invites applications for its 2016-17 visiting academic fellowships. Over thirty short-term fellowships will be awarded for periods of one to two months. Scholars of Caribbean history will find particularly rich resources in the Society's collection of 18th and 19th-century Caribbean newspapers. Details about the collection are available on the AAS website.

We especially welcome proposals that will utilize the special collections of the Yale University Libraries or other research collections of the New England area, and explicitly engage issues of slavery, resistance, abolition, and their legacies.
