Rosemarijn Hoefte has been elected president of the ACH, the Association of Caribbean Historians during their annual conference in Tobago. The ACH is an independent, non-profit, professional organization devoted to the promotion of Caribbean history from a multidisciplinary, pan-Caribbean perspective, and is the primary association for scholarly and public historians working in the field. While it began under the auspices of history, the conference now frequently hosts papers and panels on Caribbean literature, art, theatre, archeology, material culture, and identity. In 2018, the 50th annual conference will be held in Barbados.
