Call for Papers

New Open Access Academic Journal for Caribbean Studies

Karib: Nordic Journal for Caribbean Studies (ISSN 2387-6743) is a peer-reviewed open-access journal for research articles. The focus is on literature and literary theory, but we welcome articles with a cross-disciplinary approach seeking to engage in dialogue with various fields, notably history, anthropology, art, aesthetics, performance studies, cultural studies, and history of ideas, in order to promote high quality research on contemporary and historical Caribbean topics.

Based at the Department of Languages at Uppsala University and published with Stockholm University Press, the journal accepts articles in the region’s three major languages: English, Spanish, and French. Karib is published online as a continuous volume and issue throughout the year, thus insuring a swift publication process. Articles are submitted on-line and are made available as soon as they are accepted by the Editorial Committee.

We invite researchers and doctoral students to submit articles on any topic corresponding to the journal’s area of interest. But we also issue calls for papers on specific topics which will be published in a special section on Karib’s website. For this year, we are opening a special call for articles: “Curating the Caribbean: Museum Practice, History and Identity Formation”.


For further information, please read our latest editorial at

Christina Kullberg (Uppsala University) and Hans Jacob Ohldieck (University of Bergen), editors.
