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.

Thank you for considering,
