Island Studies

Screenshot
Island Studies, which is managed by Dr. Godfrey Baldacchino, a professor of sociology at the University of Malta, serves as an Internet repository of island-related research material. Within its folds, readers will find links to several of Dr. Baldacchino's projects, including research on how bridges between island and mainland communities affect the economies and social fabrics of islands; a project dedicated to the study of the economic and political systems of the world's sub-national island jurisdictions; and a study of how islands in cold water areas build tourist industries. Readers may also explore the Island Studies Journal, which has been publishing online, for free, since May of 2006. Articles vary, but have featured such interesting entries as a case study of Pitcairn Island, which was settled by mutineers from the HMS Bounty in the late 18th century and is now nearly uninhabited.
