Our Archive

Our members form an intergenerational multidisciplinary international community of scholars who have collectively beenĀ  researching and writing about the Caribbean region and its people continuously for nearly fifty years. Since 1976 every single year (except 2020) our members, at every stage of their academic career from postgraduate students to professors working in a wide range of disciplines, have gathered and shared their work at our annual conference in June/July. Our archives are therefore a rich repository for scholars of the Caribbean and we are currently working to develop it and make programmes and abstracts for all of our conferences available on the website of the Society for Caribbean Studies.

Programmes and abstracts from conferences going back to 2013 are available on the website here:

Cognizant of our leadership in the field of Caribbean Studies in the UK for five decades, we are undertaking a project to document our history as a learned society. If you have engaged with the society, please take our survey. We are interested in learning about the people, the scholars, and artists past and present who have been a part of the Society for Caribbean Studies over the past fifty years. We are also collecting documentation including photographs relating to the events we have held over the years. If you have photographs you’re willing to share with us, you can upload them here.
