This project aimed to build a collection of words that serve as rich sites for research and pedagogy in Caribbean Studies. Beginning in October, we crowd-sourced a collection of keywords and chose twelve for further exploration. Individuals or teams of Caribbean Digital participants then curated digital artifacts related to their chosen keyword, with a short introduction grouping the artifacts. Modeled on the recently completed MLA Digital Pedagogy in the Humanities, edited by Rebecca Frost Davis, Matthew K. Gold, Katherine D. Harris, and Jentery Sayers, this Keywords for Caribbean Studies collection marks the beginning of a project that will grow with future Caribbean Digital events.

The collection was launched at the Caribbean Digital event on 4 December 2020.
