Retrospective on Île en île: After 23 years of rich and sustained activity, the landmark Caribbean digital project île-en-île ceased production. At archipelagos journal we wanted to honor the two decades of pioneering editorial work of Thomas C. Spear, and the many contributions of île-en-île to our field, by doing two things: First, we helped Thomas implement several archival strategies for the site; and second, we invited several scholars and educators to reflect on the impact of the site on our teaching and research. Below are their reflections.
