The University of Miami’s Richter Library is actively involved in faculty collaborations to develop digital resources for the study of Caribbean literature. The Caribbean Writers Video Archive, consisting of more than 400 streaming videos, is an effort to capture discourse about Caribbean literature through digital media. In this archive one can view and listen to notable Caribbean writers reading their works and discussing their craft.
“Anthurium: A Caribbean Studies Journal” is a new, open access, peer-reviewed, electronic journal that publishes creative writing and articles about all aspects of Caribbean life and culture. This briefing will examine the challenges in creating these digital resources and outline future developments to integrate these resources into even more engaging learning experiences for understanding Caribbean literature through digital media.
