From Jamaica to Cuba: the languages of revolutions and revolts
presentationposted on 03.09.2020, 12:09 by Christophe Premat
The course explores Caribbean history, power relations, trade, society, culture, traditions of thought, literature and the regional influence of great powers. Various forms of philosophical expression from the Caribbean region are analyzed during the course. The course investigates matters of identity, religion, subordination and post-colonial thought. Both historical themes and contemporary literature and politics are explored. The course also studies the Caribbean from the perspective of its most important linguistic and cultural fields, namely, Spanish, English and French.
The presentation corresponds to the fourth seminar on Jamaica and Cuba in a course at the ground level which is delivered at Stockholm University from the autumn 2020 on.
