The sx:archipelagos Project

Development and assessment of new workflows for publication and long-term preservation of born-digital scholarship within Caribbean Studies.

The Caribbean is the site of some of the most radical and diverse theoretical and material engagements with the digital. The sx:archipelagos project seeks to channel that activity by providing an innovative two-tiered platform to support digital scholarship in, for, and about the Caribbean Each layer of sx:archipelagos will contribute something new to both Caribbean Studies and to the digital humanities, first via the creation and documentation of a new cost-efficient workflow for the production of text-based scholarly outputs; and second, via the creation and support of a flexible multimodal environment for the production of unique works of digital scholarship. By the close of the grant period we expect to generate: 1) five scholarly articles produced using Markdown; 2) a workflow analysis and position paper documenting the process and results of our experiment in online publishing; 3) one peer-reviewed digital project and corresponding narrative of its construction. We will post our white paper and multimodal exhibition to an inaugural, beta iteration of the platform.
