AAST 357 - Empire and Resistance in the Caribbean

FC SSCI CD WINT
4 credits
The course examines U.S. and European colonialism and imperialism in the Americas. Students will analyze these occurrences in the Caribbean region specifically (Cuba, Haiti, Trinidad, Jamaica, and Puerto Rico, etc.). Additionally, we investigate how Caribbean citizens–at home and in their respective diasporas–act against and ally with colonialist projects and Empire. Our analysis will incorporate theories and praxis related to race, gender, class, violence, memory, and power.
