Caribbean Writers in the U.S. Diaspora

AMST 247
Fall 2018 not offered
Crosslisting: AFAM 243, ENGL 243, LAST 247
Course Cluster: Caribbean Studies Minor

The Caribbean cloaks a complex history in a Club Med exterior. While white sands and palm trees proclaim it the "antidote to civilization," Caribbean writers undertake to represent a fuller picture of the individual in a world shaped by colonialism, slavery, nationalism, and cultural striving. This course will examine selected literary texts as part of an ongoing dialogue among the region's history, mythology, and aesthetics.
