About Exhibits

ECDA Exhibits are curated collections of early Caribbean materials, which offer new entryways into the archive. Each exhibit tells a story about the relationship between texts and images, linking geographies, genres, and print culture. Exhibits offer users a more comprehensive sense of the early Caribbean archive by showing the connections across materials.

Several of the ECDA exhibits are currently under construction. For a model of how we are using exhibits, see PhD student Alanna Prince's exhibit on Images from the Archive.
