  • Social-Ecological Resilience and Stakeholders: A Qualitative Inquiry into
           Community-based Tourism in the Commonwealth of Dominica
    • Abstract: The economy of the Commonwealth of Dominica, henceforth Dominica, is the most challenged in the Eastern Caribbean States (US Dept. of State 2010). Dominica's chief agricultural industry, banana exports, was crippled in the 1990s by international competition and the World Trade Organization's decision to curtail the island's preferential trade arrangements in Europe (Payne 2006; Slinger 2002). Large-scale infrastructure damage from Hurricanes Dean and Omar in 2007 and 2008, the global economic downturn and accompanying disorder in international financial markets, loss of tourism earnings, sharp drops in Foreign Direct Investments (FDI) and remittances have all contributed to the deterioration of Dominica's economy ...

Es decir, la convergencia, los enlaces, la continuidad de las historias humanas.He tratado de afincarme en mi país de modo excéntrico, con el oído puesto en otra parte.… el lugar donde se nace puede ser accidental, y … deja de serlo cuando se instala en la imaginación.En una serie de ensayos recientes, la escritora puertorriqueña Marta Aponte Alsina enlaza a ...

  • The Art of Public Policy Statisticians: The Case of the Puerto Rico
           Pension Reform Report
    • Abstract: The 1954 book How to Lie with Statistics, written by Darrell Huff and illustrated by Irving Geis, which is the world most famous statistics book (Steele 2005), owes its success to its rhetorical critique and advice. While the title suggests that the book is a perverse manual to train racketeers in statistical techniques, it is actually a lay book on how people argue with data. Yet, most statisticians are not trained to systematically think about and be self-critical of quantitative arguments. The contentious relation of statistics and rhetoric has deep historical roots. Proponents of the emerging science of statistics in the first half of the nineteenth century in England thought that the spirit of their age had ... Read More

  • La imagen detrás de la pantalla: Análisis del consumo de cine en
           jóvenes arubeños
    • Abstract: La región caribeña, como muchos otros espacios de la periferia, ha sido, desde una época muy temprana en la historia del cine, un ámbito de consumo de los filmes generados en los centros hegemónicos de producción audiovisual—fundamentalmente aquellos provenientes de Estados Unidos y de las antiguas metrópolis de los países de la región. No obstante, en las últimas décadas se ha hecho evidente un importante auge en la producción de cine caribeño, acompañado en varios países de la región por políticas culturales y sistemas institucionales con potencial para su desarrollo. Aun así, en la mayoría de los países de la región, este desarrollo en la producción no se refleja en el incremento del consumo de cine caribeño ... Read More

  • El Caribe centroamericano en la estrategia defensivomilitar de la Casa de
           los Austrias, siglos XVI y XVII
    • Abstract: El Caribe centroamericano durante la época del Descubrimiento y de la consolidación administrativa española en las Antillas Mayores fue un área de poco interés para los colonizadores. Esta idea generalizada deriva de que las condiciones para establecerse y vivir en dicho espacio geográfico, que se extiende desde Darién hasta Yucatán, fueron muy duras e insalubres. Dicha imagen fue divulgada a través de las noticias de los primeros conquistadores que visitaron Tierra Firme. Sin embargo, en 1510, cuando se fundó la primera villa española en el continente americano, Santa María la Antigua de Darién en el Golfo de Urabá, comenzó la migración hacia el istmo panameño. Las pugnas entre comandantes españoles (Vasco Núñez ... Read More

  • Una mirada a las poblaciones vulnerables en Puerto Rico ante desastres
    • Abstract: Los desastres en general tienen un impacto negativo sobre los aspectos humanos, psicológicos, sociales, económicos, políticos, ecológicos, entre otros, y de manera especial, sobre la salud individual y pública. Independientemente de si los desastres son naturales o provocados por el ser humano, éstos plantean grandes retos, especialmente a las poblaciones con necesidades funcionales y de acceso (Centro de Preparación en Salud Pública - UPR 2011).Durante la ocurrencia de un desastre, no todas las personas se afectan de la misma manera. Existen unas variaciones que reflejan los diferentes elementos asociados a la vulnerabilidad y la capacidad de la persona, que incluyen el acceso a diversos recursos, ya sean ... Read More

  • Understanding Perceptions of Language Threat: The Case of Puerto Rico
    • Abstract: Research focusing on threatened languages where language shift is underway has been the focus of much of the research within the field of language policy and planning (LPP). Of great concern has been the loss of countless languages taken over by more dominant languages and their speakers (Hale et al. 1992; King 1999). Ecological frameworks have been used in the field to argue that languages, in some ways, are similar to natural species, and thus need to be protected (Phillipson & Skutnabb-Kangas 1996). However, the argument for protection assumes that the language(s) is/are indeed endangered (May 2000; Pennycook 2000). The terms 'threat' and 'endangerment' within the field of language policy are often used ... Read More

    • Abstract: El 5 de marzo de 1836, la goleta nacional Pelicano, su capitán y piloto Manuel Pérez Espinola de 21 años de edad, procedente de Nueva Orleans con 10 días de navegación, fondeó en la bahía de Sisal donde fue arrestada por las autoridades de este puerto, quienes sospechaban que había participado en el proceder de contrabando. Mientras se esperaba la decisión del juez del Distrito quien tenía que dictaminar si la goleta había caído en el tráfico ilícito de mercancías, se le había quitado las velas, salvo la de micena por si soplaba un viento fuerte del norte.

  • The Caribbeanist Mervyn C. Alleyne (1933-2016)
    • Abstract: Spanning a period of more than fifty years, Mervyn Coleridge Alleyne's vibrant career as a Caribbeanist produced valuable scholarship that enriched traditional disciplines while it also helped to define emergent fields of study, most significantly Caribbean linguistics. Much of his work in the latter area offers a holistic view of language, presenting insights that transcend the various subfields of linguistics. At the same time, the body of work that he leaves behind is of impressive interdisciplinary breadth. His publications—eight books and more than 100 chapters, articles, and reviews—include significant contributions in the areas of history, culture, ethnomusicology, cultural anthropology, and folk medicine. ...

  • In Memoriam Michael Craton, Historian
    • Abstract: Michael Craton, who died in September 2016, was an English/Canadian historian who made a major contribution to the historiography of the English-speaking Caribbean. He was born in London in 1931, and educated at Christ's Hospital in Horsham, West Sussex, and at University College London, where he graduated with a B.A. in History in 1955. He spent six years after graduation teaching at the Government High School in Nassau, The Bahamas, before emigrating to Canada in 1963, obtaining his M.A. and Ph.D. degrees at McMaster University in Ontario. In 1966 he joined the faculty at the University of Waterloo, also in Ontario, and stayed there until his retirement in 1997. He was named a Distinguished Professor Emeritus in ... Read More

  • Non-Sovereign Futures: French Caribbean Politics in the Wake of

    • Abstract: El libro Non-Sovereign Futures: French Caribbean Politics in the Wake of Disenchantment expone cómo los habitantes de la Isla de Guadalupe denuncian las diversas manifestaciones y legados del colonialismo a través de la lucha laboral. En 2009 la población de Guadalupe se levantó en una de las huelgas más prolongadas y masivas en la historia del Caribe, en la que participaron más de cien mil personas (una cuarta parte de la población). Yarimar Bonilla relata y analiza este evento y los eventos de movilización social que le precedieron, prestándole particular atención a cómo los activistas sindicalistas responden a las injusticias, desigualdades profundas y a los retos de soberanía que caracterizan la era ...

  • Theorizing Glissant: Sites and Citations eds. by John Drabinski and Marisa
           Parham (review)
    • Abstract: The collection Theorizing Glissant: Sites and Citations makes an important contribution to the field of Caribbean studies through a nuanced and diverse examination of the keywords that lie at the core of Édouard Glissant's vast oeuvre. The book reads as a sort of guide through the central tropes, poetic aims, political contexts, and philosophical questions that motivate the Martinican's thought. The authors gathered in this book approach these ideas from multiple disciplinary perspectives, situating his work in relation to key historical and political processes in Martinique and in the broader Caribbean. Several of these essays also locate Glissant's ideas in counterpoint to those of thinkers such as Gilles Deleuze ... Read More

  • Island Bodies: Transgressive Sexualities in the Caribbean Imagination by
           Rosamond S. king (review)
    • Abstract: Voy a comenzar comentando dos vocablos que Rosamond King utiliza en su título. Primero, el adjetivo "transgresivas" refiriéndose a las sexualidades y segundo, el sustantivo "imaginación", referido al Caribe. También quiero comentar su concepto Carib global pues me parece conceptualmente obscuro, como también su uso conceptual de los vocablos "transgresivo" e "imaginación". Sí me parece muy bien su inclusión de la diáspora caribeña en el Caribe global, algo no muy común en los análisis de esta compleja área geopolítica e histórica. De paso, no debemos suponer que todo el mundo conoce bien el mapa del Caribe. Un buen mapa acompañando su texto ayudaría mucho.Según el diccionario de la Real Academia Española (RAE), los ...

  • Slave Families and the Hato Economy in Puerto Rico by David M. Stark
           (review)
    • Abstract: La dificultad de estudiar la esclavitud a menudo recae sobre la ausencia de datos confiables o material suficiente. Esto, junto a la necesidad de tener que recurrir a los archivos del amo, en ocasiones dice muy poco de la vida de aquellas personas que sufrieron del sistema esclavista. Por esto, impresiona el esfuerzo de David M. Stark en Slave Families and the Hato Economy in Puerto Rico. Utilizando el método de reconstitución de familias que le posibilitan los archivos parroquiales de Puerto Rico, actas de nacimiento, de matrimonio y de deceso, logra pintar un escenario lo suficientemente complejo y completo como para llegar a conclusiones respecto a las familias esclavas de la economía del hato (aproximadamente ...

Tula joins the list of narratives, fictional and historical, such as Aphra Benn's Oroonoko or The Royal Slave, Namba Roy's The Black Albino, My Name is Not Angelica by Scott O'Dell, Alejo Carpentier's The Kingdom of This World, Aimé Césaire's, The Tragedy of King Christophe, and Derek Walcott's Henri Christophe: A Chronicle in Seven Scenes.Set in Curaçao, the largest of the Dutch Caribbean islands, Tula: The Revolt begins as a peaceful protest movement for better treatment of the enslaved, as dictated ...
