A Small Place
AFAM 216
Spring 2024
Section: 01  

Inspired by both Jamaica Kincaid and Paule Marshall's notion of a "small place," this seminar examines colonial and imperialist binaries of "large" versus "small" that render the Caribbean, the Pacific, and many other archipelagos as existing outside of the "world." How do islands become microsomes of a shared but contested global reality? This one of many questions students will be asked to consider throughout the seminar.
