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.

New Resource on Haitian History

Dear colleagues,

I'm forwarding the message below on behalf of Brooke Wooldridge and Adam Silva of Florida International University. With contributions from leading experts in Haitian history and culture, they have created an exciting new open-access resource on Haiti. The site is being launched for Haitian Heritage Month but will remain online indefinitely. It is a project of the wonderful full-text archive The Digital Library of the Caribbean (dLOC), and includes links to sources in that collection.

With best regards,

Alyssa Goldstein Sepinwall
