NB Special issue for Spring 2018: focusing on Carnival in all its forms.

“Carnival throughout the Caribbean and the diaspora has both fans and detractors. The issue of the traditional being swept aside for more recent iterations persist. Still, the festival is not only persisting but proliferating. For this special issue of Moko, we step away from the Carnival arts (and the surrounding scholarship) and look instead at the art Carnival inspires.”

Anu Lakhan – Editor
