Extending Europe: The Dutch Periodical Publications of the Caribbean and Latin America


The Dutch language periodicals press and its development in the Caribbean and Latin America have remained understudied in the North American context due to the lack of robust access to these periodicals in the North American libraries. In the context of Iberian and Latin American Studies, one finds the wealth of information on both Spanish and Portuguese language periodicals. In the present article, I try to provide a cursory survey of the some of the Dutch periodicals in the Caribbean and Latin America (primarily in Suriname) since the early days of the Dutch colonization through the early 20th century. This article also provides the description of the Open Access sources that allow the researchers to access these periodicals digitally.

Many UC-authored scholarly publications are freely available on this site because of the UC's open access policies. Let us know how this access is important for you.
