Creole Social and Cultural Studies is a multidisciplinary research programme conducted by Professor Robin Cohen and funded by the ESRC. This programme is the first major comparative study of creolization and mixed identity. It will investigate the social scientific value of the concepts of creolization (and cognate concepts like hybridity, métissage and syncretism) in Brazil, the South Atlantic/Indian oceans, the Caribbean, West Africa (notably Sierra Leone), the USA and the UK. The website attached to the project serves as a point of reference for all those engaged in Creole Studies, particularly (but not exclusively) those working on contemporary cultural, sociological and anthropological aspects of creolization.
