The Caribbean: Culture and Society

Course #: LATAM 305

This course examines the cultural, historical, and social development of the Caribbean. A point of departure is the historical phenomenon of Western colonization with the Caribbean at its center and the ways in which the 'narratives' of said colonization express the cultural dilemma, legacy of slavery, racial and national implications, and environmental impact of this process. Topics may include the Haitian Revolution, the Cuban War of Independence, n?gritude/negritud, the Cuban Revolution, decolonization, diaspora, race and creolization, and others.
