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 following jobs were posted to the H-Net Job Guide from 3 March 2014 to 10 March 2014. These job postings are included here based on the categories selected by the list editors for H-Caribbean. See the H-Net Job Guide website at http://www.h-net.org/jobs/ for more information.
