Edited volume | Local voices, global debates: The uses of archaeological heritage in the Caribbean

Edited by Joseph Sony Jean (KITLV) & Eduardo Herrera Malatesta. Read about Caribbean archaeology and the role of local Caribbean individuals and communities in the creation and preservation of this heritage in this new open access publication!

What is the role of local Caribbean individuals and communities in creating and perpetuating archaeological heritage? How has archaeological knowledge been integrated into education plans in different countries? This book aims to fill a gap in both archaeological scholarship and popular knowledge by providing a platform for local Caribbean voices to speak about the archaeological heritage of their region. To achieve this, each chapter of the book focuses on identifying and developing strategies that academics, heritage practitioners, and non-scholars from the insular Caribbean can adopt to stimulate a necessary dialogue on how archaeological heritage is used and produced on various academic, political, and social levels.
