AFST 319 - The Caribbean


Fall or Spring (3) Staff (College 200, CSI)

Situated at the crossroads of Africa, Europe, Latin America, and the United States, the Caribbean has played a pivotal role in global transformations since 1492. The region's past helped shape and was shaped by many of the contradictory themes defining modern history: slavery and freedom, racism and equality, empire and independence, despotism and democracy, and migration and transnationalism. Focusing on Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, Jamaica, and especially Haiti and Cuba, we will explore these themes in Caribbean history from the Haitian Revolution to the present. The course is structured around class discussion. Grading will be based on brief papers and class participation. (This course is anchored in the CSI domain, and also considers aspects of the ALV domain.) (Cross-listed with HIST 309  and LAS 309 .)
