Description:
This course undertakes a phenomenological and interpretive analysis of the organization and social structure of modern Caribbean societies. After a brief examination of the colonization and slavery period, it concentrates on the contemporary era with a special focus on key factors that have shaped the cultural parameters and the internal dynamics of the social systems of these Creolophone, Francophone, Anglophone Hispanophone and Dutch-speaking Caribbean societies. Special attention is therefore given to the salient racial, ethnic, social, political, economic and cultural issues that have significantly influenced and contributed to present day Caribbean societies.
