Nomadic Islanders: Contemporary Caribbean Diasporas and Identities
FREN 304
Spring 2007 not offered
Crosslisting: LAST 256, COL 305

Diasporas from Europe, Asia, and Africa have long been a part of Caribbean identities. Since the 60s however, many Caribbean citizens have left the Caribbean and moved to North American and European cities (Miami, New York, Montreal, Paris), creating a new diaspora and reshaping Caribbean identities. This course will focus on the representations of contemporary Caribbean migrants to North America and Europe in Franco-Caribbean literature. How does this literature represent these new Caribbean migrants? Does it redefine Caribbean identity? Does it offer alternatives to the 80's and 90's notions of Antillanite and Creoleness? Class discussions and papers in French.
