Abstract

Drawing on the way international financial institutions, development organizations, and the state have "discovered" the investment possibilities of diasporic populations, this essay suggests new directions for a reinvigorated approach to Caribbean studies, one that is well placed to historicize the ways the diaspora is approached, and one that can also engage reflexively with how contributions in the field have created the conditions of possibility for the current official romance with diaspora.
