In Cuba International Encounter of Caribbean Journals
The aim of the colloquium is to exchange experiences on our journals, to recognize those that have been emblematic and its founders, to bring together that huge editorial world and to design joined cultural projects, possible networks and other means of exchange, from an interdisciplinary perspective.

Recognizing the importance of this “project, ever invaluable, that is a magazine,” this encounter aims to widen through panels, presentations, conferences, debates and expositions, the knowledge on the Caribbean cultural universe.

The event will be dedicated to think and re-think about the past and the present of our Caribbean reality through our journals, because they are travelers that have no border, capable of building relationships and to establish simultaneity of spaces and times.
