Limited access to resources and lesson plans incorporating the Caribbean in primary through higher education prompted dLOC to create this collection. This collection includes syllabi, education modules, lesson plans, and more. 

Also, see teaching and other Open Educational Resource materials from the 2020 site for the NEH Advanced Digital Humanities Institute: Migration, Mobility, and Sustainability.

Caribbean Studies Bibliography Project

In the interest of supporting the Caribbean studies community, dLOC is working to compile and develop a series of crowdsourced bibliographies about various facets of Caribbean history and culture.

Our aim is to develop a resource that students, academics, and the general public will find useful and that will facilitate reading and research on the Caribbean. Ultimately, through a collective effort we hope to compile a series of lists that cover the breadth of the field – geographically, linguistically, and subject-wise.

To see the bibliographies and/or to add resources please click through to the dLOC Caribbean Bibliography Project.

Caribbean Studies DH Institute
