Caribbean Geographies

AFAM 268
Spring 2025
Section: 01  
Course Cluster and Certificates: Social, Cultural, and Critical Theory Certificate

This course will explore how human and non-human encounters induced through slavery, indentureship and colonialism have been imagined and contested by Caribbean geographers, ecologists, artists, and poets. Students will gain an immense understanding of how Caribbean communities have experienced and countered geographic problems like uneven development, vaccine apartheid and gender-based violence. Students will think through concepts that define Caribbean geographies, such as 'the plot,' 'the bounty,' 'black land,' and the 'kala pani.'
