Spring 2012 not offered
LAST 256, COL 305|
From the moment of the Caribbean's first regional declaration of independence in 1804, through its embrace and subsequent rejection of the totalizing narratives of both Marxism and Negritude, to its ultimate conception of itself as a discreet cultural unit, the Caribbean has managed to express its own will to power. In this course we will consider the processes through which it managed to do so, as well as those which tried to stop it.
