The Caribbean Literary Studies Program was formed in 1999 with the goal of creating imaginative and productive spaces to hold discussions about Caribbean literature, culture and the arts.

The program is made up of graduate students (M.F.A., M.A., and Ph.D.), alumni, faculty and other interested parties from the University of Miami community and the Greater Miami area who have  critical and creative interests Caribbean cultural production.

We work collaboratively to produce an array of academic and community forums: our peer-reviewed electronic journal, Anthurium, bi-annual conferences partnering with local cultural institutions, and events that introduce new and emerging writers, scholars and visual artists to the Greater Miami community throughout the year.
