Centre for Caribbean Studies
Established in October, 1984, it was the first such Centre in the UK to recognise the significance of the Caribbean region and its historically interdependent linkages with the UK and the world. Further, the Centre recognised the differing legacies of the various European countries, particularly from the fifteenth century to the twentieth century in the region, that are reflected in the plurality of languages, cultures, and religions. Concomitantly, the communities of Caribbean peoples who later migrated and settled in Britain, Europe and the United States have also influenced culture and society in their adopted homelands.
