CARIBBEAN VISTAS:

CRITIQUES OF CARIBBEAN ARTS AND CULTURES


Caribbean Vistas, a refereed journal [written in English] in electronic form, will serve both as a formal venue for scholarly discussion and as an academic and cultural resource for researchers.


Articles in Caribbean Vistas will examine Anglophone, Francophone, and Hispanophone literatures, cultures, languages, visual arts, and performance arts from a variety of perspectives with an emphasis on works created in the 19th, 20th, and 21st centuries.


A section for previously unpublished poetry of Caribbean writers will also be a feature of Caribbean Vistas. Dr. Kwame Dawes, noted author and cultural critic, is the Poetry Editor of Caribbean Vistas.


Reviews in Caribbean Vistas will analyze recent fiction, poetry, drama, and literary nonfiction as well as scholarly works of interest in the disciplines.


Caribbean Vistas (ISSN xxxx-xxxx) will be published twice a year (Summer and Winter) for the on-line academic, artistic, and cultural community by the Caribbean Arts and Culture Symposium.


Our first issue will appear in Summer 2010.
