Empire and Resistance in the Caribbean (Haiti, Jamaica, Grenada, and Trinidad)

Africana Studies 357

Usual Description

The class focuses on colonialism and imperialism in the Americas. Students will analyze the United States, Haiti, Jamaica, Grenada, and Trinidad’s struggle for independence. We examine U.S. imperialism in the Caribbean and Caribbean citizens’ acts. We document shifts and continuities from the Age of Revolutions to the late 1980s. Is there a commonality between the Haitian and U.S. Revolutions and the Grenada invasion of the 1980s? We examine race, ethcicity, color, and calss (re)distribution.
