Interdisciplinarity is considered to be the twentieth century term, which was marked by the industry-based society, but, only in the 21st century, we are progressing into a knowledge-based society. However accumulation and creation of knowledge are not made automatically. While the academic endeavours of researchers in various fields result in the quantitative development of knowledge, the paradigm shift achieved through communication among and convergence of diverse academic fields brings about the qualitative creation of knowledge.

It honors books that cross subdisciplinary boundaries within anthropology and reach out in new and expanded interdisciplinary directions.
Migration is one of the largest topics of our time. Its motivations and effects on the migrants and the host nations have prompted complex and fundamental discussion in much of the world in recent years. The volume we imagine takes this discussion as a backdrop and turns the readers’ attention to the complexity of migration in the Spanish-speaking Caribbean. In this geographic area, migration has a long history and has always included a back and forth between different islands in response to economic and/or political problems in the homelands.
