BWS 217 - Caribbean History: Columbus to Castro

3 hours
This course will focus on Caribbean history from 1492 to1963, “Columbus to Castro.” We will emphasize the following historical themes: Columbian “encounter,” European conquest and colonization, slavery and resistance, social and cultural transformation. Focusing on the anglophone and francophone Caribbean, Afro-Atlantic connections via the civil rights movement in the United States and the nationalist and independence struggles in Africa and the Caribbean will be discussed. Ultimately, we will investigate Caribbean contributions to Atlantic cultural expression and identity, nation building, modernity, and globalization.
