We welcome essays about any aspect of the early Caribbean—defined as prior to 1900. In addition to scholarly essays, we are also interested in brief commentary on matters of significant interest to those studying the early Caribbean. More specifically, we are seeking contributors for book reviews, and brief essays about pedagogy and compelling archival materials.
