The Circum-Caribbean and its Diasporas constitute a space of relations and
disconnections. Historically, the Caribbean served as a bridgehead for the European
conquest of the Americas and a point of exchange of human beings, ideas, and
commodities. It also became a laboratory of modern forms of social, political, and
economic production. Today, the region represents a multilingual space of
conviviality for many different cultures, but also the focus of the dissonances,
ruptures and insularities produced by its distinct histories of colonialism and
resistance. This interdisciplinary volume seeks to explore how (non)circulation of
ideas occurred historically in the glocal production of knowledge in and about the
Caribbean and to formulate a clearer picture of who is creating which vision of the
Caribbean, and how. The 33 contributions in this volume shed light on the
transversal fields of (1) Academic and Artistic Approaches, (2) Arts and Visual
Studies, (3) Environment and Sustainability, (4) Migration and Knowledge
Circulation, (5) Entangled Histories and Memories.
