New Issue: Caribbean Studies (45: 1 & 2)


In spite of all the stumbling blocks and unforeseen events the University of Puerto Rico has faced in the past few years (especially, the massive post-hurricane destruction), the Institute of Caribbean Studies (ICS) has just published the latest issue of Caribbean Studies, Vol. 45 Nos. 1, 2 (January-December 2017). What a wonderful way to celebrate the institute’s 60-year anniversary.

This volume is a special issue—Language Contact, Creoles, and Multilingualism: Stigma, Creativity, and Resilience—put together by guest editors Rosa E. Guzzardo Tamargo, Yolanda Rivera Castillo, and Don E. Walicek (University of Puerto Rico-Río Piedras). Here is a segment of the table of contents:
