Small Axe focuses on the renewal of the practices of intellectual criticism in the Caribbean and on the expansion/revision of the horizons of such criticism. It recognizes a tradition of social, political, and cultural criticism in and about the regional/diasporic Caribbean and honors that tradition. It also argues with it because it is through such argument that a tradition renews itself. Small Axe provides a forum for rethinking many of the conceptions that guided the formation of Caribbean modernities - conceptions of class, gender, nation, culture, and race, for example - and provides an informed and sustained debate about the present, its political and cultural contours, its historical conditions and global content, and the critical languages in which change can be thought and alternatives re-imagined. The journal regularly includes fiction, nonfiction, poetry, interviews, visual art, and reviews, and is published twice a year.
