This essay is part of a special section on Edward Kamau Brathwaite’s 1975 essay “Caribbean Man in Space and Time” (reprinted in the issue), briefly tracing the dissemination history of Brathwaite’s essay, then focusing on two main lines of argument in it to explore their significance for current practices and possibilities in Caribbean studies. Using three contemporary digital projects as examples, the author elaborates on the potential affordances and limitations of digital platforms and technologies as (in Brathwaite’s terms) “agents of change,” while arguing the case for “how the digital allows us to think the Caribbean differently.”
