AFRS 3220 - The Caribbean from Slavery to Independence
Covering the sweep of history from European/indigenous contact, through the construction of a plantation regime based on African slave labor, and up to the present day, this course explores the spread of colonialism, the dynamics of slavery, and the tumult of abolition and national independence movements. The Caribbean Sea is examined as a region, emphasizing the ties uniting the islands and the circum-Caribbean coasts. The region’s past - including empire and imperial conflict, racial oppression and interaction, and international contact - and its legacies will be discussed in relation to political economics, race, and contemporary culture.
