The editorial categories are research topics that have guided researchers during the recovery phase and continue to be the impetus behind the Documents Project’s digital archive and the Critical Documents book series. Developed by the project’s Editorial Board, each of the teams analyzed this framework and adapted it to their local contexts in developing their research objectives and work plans during the Recovery Phase.

The work of Jorge Soto, an artist of Puerto Rican descent, is featured in the portfolio section of the first issue of Caribe magazine. He explains his drawings and images as incorporating symbols and meanings related to the general themes of being human as well as to his Puerto Rican roots that merge indigenous Arawak and African ancestry. Making a statement against the interpretation of African and indigenous cultures as exotic or primitive, Soto writes that he is inspired by a world view that respects nature, in which “Man understood his relationship with the Universe and was at peace with himself.”
