A Virtual Symposium

This year, the annual Caribbean Digital event was held virtually, with three asynchronous digital community projects and a synchronous gathering. The three projects–a Directory of Caribbean Digital Scholarship, a Collective Annotation of Aimé Césaire’s Notebook of a Return to My Native Land, and a Keyword Collection for Caribbean Studies–were designed to embrace the digital as critical praxis, negotiating the challenges and opportunities presented by the media technologies that ever more intensely reconfigure the social, historical, and geo-political contours of the Caribbean and its diasporas. As with every iteration of “The Caribbean Digital,” participants considered the affordances and limitations of the digital with respect to a wide range of disciplines and methodologies.
