FLL 31000 - Caribbean Literatures And Cultures


Credit Hours: 3.00. This course, offered in English, will focus on the literature, culture, and arts of the Caribbean. Issues of colonialism and postcolonialism, slavery and freedom, exile and immigration, tensions between race and gender and between languages will be examined through poetry, novels, storytelling, theater, music, and film analysis. In this course, we will examine different Caribbean texts (literary, non-fiction and filmic) in order to learn how different writers and different types of texts respond to the colonialist context in which they were forged. Our work will consist of uncovering discourse, reading for intertextual dialogues and analyzing responses to dominant and colonialist ideology. Typically offered Fall Spring Summer.
