About This Journal
The Journal of Cape Verdean Studies has as a principal function the creation and dissemination of knowledge relating to Cape Verde and the Cape Verdean experience and identities within the context of globalized societies. Through an inter-disciplinary lens, recognizing the pivotal role of Cape Verde as a global-cultural intersecting point for the last 500 years, the journal critically analyzes the history, culture and transnational experiences of Creole peoples and their impact on the world around them. The journal seeks to create a space where intellectual dialogue is encouraged and serves as a pillar for social action.
The Journal of Cape Verdean Studies (ISSN 2183-4962) is peer reviewed and published twice a year – in April and October – on behalf of the Pedro Pires Institute for Cape Verdean Studies at Bridgewater State University.
