HS 372 - Women in the Caribbean since Emancipation
(3 cr.) Using discussion and reading, this course explores women making Caribbean history as they transitioned from slave to free societies and from colonial to independent states throughout the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries. Through critical analysis of women's memoirs, diaries, oral histories and visual materials, students investigate, speculate, debate and narrate women's experiences, contributions, ideas about and observations of the often tumultuous political, social, economic and cultural transformations across the Caribbean since the ending of slavery.
