Caribbean Studies Association

Caribbesn Studies Association logo

The Caribbean Studies Association (CSA) is an independent professional organization devoted to the promotion of Caribbean studies from a multidisciplinary, multicultural point of view. It is the primary association for scholars and practitioners working on the Caribbean Region (including Central America and the Caribbean Coast of South America). Its members come from the Caribbean Region, North America, South America, Central America, Europe and elsewhere even though more than half of its members live in the United States many of them teaching at U.S. universities and colleges. Founded in 1974 by 300 Caribbeanists, the CSA now has over 1100 members.

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENTS

New Web Site and Membership Management System Coming Soon

Please be advised that the CSA Executive Council is in the process of transitioning to a new software management system for membership, conference registration, and abstract/panel submissions. The Program Chairs, Secretariat, Vice President, and Web Designer are working hard to make the transition process seamless for all CSA members.


Please note that the submission process (as well as membership and registration) will be different this year, and we plan to launch the new system by early September. Therefore, we are not accepting submissions until then. We will keep the CSA members updated during this process through email and via the website.

CSA Statement on the Denaturalization and Deportation of Dominicans of Haitian Descent

The Caribbean Studies Association unequivocally condemns the denaturalization and deportation of Dominicans of Haitian Descent from the Dominican Republic. We regard this as a distinct violation of their human rights, a dis-regard for human dignity and an absolute travesty against the history and meaning of Caribbean community. We ask all international institutions to intervene to pre-empt this tragedy in the making.


As the executive council of the CSA, which is the primary association for scholars and practitioners working on the Caribbean Region, we represent over 1100 members. As a body, we stand firmly against the human rights violations against persons of Haitian Descent in the DR. We denounce the Dominican Republic’s Constitutional Tribunal Ruling 168-13 and the change of citizenship policy in September 2013, which stripped the citizenship rights of Dominicans born to Haitian immigrants as far back as 1929, as well as Law 169-14 that passed in May 2014, which established requirements and rules for naturalization of people born in the DR to undocumented migrants.
