Caribbean Societies: Socioeconomic Change and Cultural Adaptations

Community: Caribbean Societies: Socioeconomic Change and Cultural Adaptations
Owner: wayne_marshall
Description:

This is the H2O Community for the Foreign Cultures Core course, "Caribbean Societies: Socioeconomic Change and Cultural Adaptations."

Caribbean societies are largely the economic and political creations of Western imperial powers. Though in the West, they are only partly of it, and their popular cultures are highly original blends of African and European forms. The course examines the area as a system emerging from a situation of great social and cultural diversity to the present tendency toward social and cultural convergence. Patterns of underdevelopment are explored through case studies of Latin and Afro-Caribbean states, as are cultural adaptations through studies of Afro-Caribbean religions, fiction, and music.
