In the academic sphere, of most note is Wasafiri, a journal of literary criticism, imaginative writing, essays on the arts, events and resources related to Caribbean, African, Asian and associated literatures in English. Founded in 1984, it was originally published by The Association for the Teaching of Caribbean, African and Asian Literatures to foster multicultural debate and publish new writing.
