An ethnographic account of how the islanders of the Caribbean island of Culebra reproduce a sense of unique insular identity, while engaged in continuous practices of regional and global movements. It proposes the concept of "transinsularism", inspired by the concept of transnationalism, as a means to address the multiple and simultaneous dynamics at play when islanders maintain a sense of unique island culture by developing intimate relations with other discursive spaces.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Carlo Cubero's wonderfully sensitive and rich exploration of Caribbean transinsularity breaks new ground by grasping the relationship of immanence that exists between the circulations and stabilities of human social life. We learn ethnographically how people forge lives that are at once insular and transnational, and which unsettle academic and political perspectives that privilege one dimension over the other.--Peter Wade, Professor of Social Anthropology at the University of Manchester
Cubero imaginatively tackles models long prevalent in Caribbean Studies that identify the region as insular, victimized, and imperial replicas while also as mobile, victorious, and unique. The island of Culebra is the rich site of this welcome critique, which explores what Caribbean postcolonial, national, and transnational identities can otherwise mean if approached through multiple forms of local agency and practice.--Aisha Khan, Associate Professor of Anthropology at NYU College of Arts and Science
This ethnographically rich experience-near study of music and life in the tiny island of Culebra is a fine example of how research in the Caribbean can benefit from an intellectual approach that is simultaneously archipelagean, transinsular and cosmopolitan. Carlo Cubero brings 'mangrove' methodology to his anthropological understanding of Culebra and hence of contemporary world society.--Huon Wardle, Director of the Centre for Cosmopolitan Studies, University of St Andrews
