Wadabagei: A Journal of the Caribbean and Its Diasporas, is committed to facilitating the exchange of ideas among Caribbean scholars worldwide. It is a multidisciplinary journal that publishes scholarly articles and occasional creative works from diverse fields including politics, literature, sociology, and religion, and reviews recent publications in Caribbean studies. Wadabagei places special emphasis on the acculturation of Caribbean people in North America but explores the Caribbean experience in all geographic locations where Caribbean people have settled.
The journal is owned, edited and managed by the Caribbean Diaspora Press Inc and published and marketed by Lexington Books.
The journal's title is a Garifuna name for the conch shell that is frequently used to awaken Caribbean villages and announce community gatherings. It symbolizes the historic call to action by Haitian slaves and the Caribbean people's continuing struggle for self-expression and self-determination.
