Class Details

The course will focus on the representation of the trauma of slavery and abolitionist narratives in the 19th-century Caribbean. We will study the concept of transculturation and the processes and practices of negotiation and cultural resistance of Afro-descendants throughout the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. In addition, we will focus on conflicts derived from race, gender and identity in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, closely related to emigration and globalization phenomena.
