AAST 227 - Saint Domingue/Haiti in the Atlantic World

FC SSCI CD
4 credits
This course introduces students to the history of the Atlantic World through an in-depth examination of one of its richest and violent colonies, Saint-Domingue. The course begins with the discussion of the indigenous population, pre-1492 and ends in 1805, with the issuance of Haiti’s first Constitution. Students will explore the diverse population of St. Domingue (indigenous, African and European); the structure of colonial society; and St. Domingue’s participation in the Age of Revolution that produced Haiti.
