The Caribbean Digital VII Virtual Symposium

The Caribbean Digital VII

Build: October – December 2020

Launch: 4 December 2020 at 1:00-2:00pm (EST)

This year, the seventh annual Caribbean Digital event will be held virtually, with three asynchronous digital community projects and a synchronous gathering.

Currently, we are in the midst of collecting entries for one of the three community projects, our Directory of Caribbean Digital Scholarship. To suggest projects for inclusion in the Directory, you are invited to add links and annotations to our master spreadsheet between October 26 and November 20.

We are also gearing up for our Collective Annotation of Aimé Césaire’s Notebook of a Return to My Native Land, which will run November 16 to 20. This event offers our community an opportunity to engage Césaire’s work in ways that will generate an original textual artifact. Please sign up here to receive timely information regarding participation in this venture.

Our third valence, a Keyword Collection for Caribbean Studies, initiates a collaborative exploration of words that serve as rich sites for research and pedagogy in Caribbean Studies. This collection is intended to be the beginning of a project that will grow with future Caribbean Digital events.

e are excited to work on these three projects with you. Please contact us at if you have questions and/or wish to participate. All three ventures will be launched synchronously at the Caribbean Digital event on 4 December 2020, 1p-2p, which you can register for here.
