SOCI 425W: The Black Atlantic (3 Units)
Dr. Rafik Mohamed
With a particular emphasis on Jamaica, this course provides an overview of Caribbean society and culture from the beginning of the trans-Atlantic slave trade to the present. Specific attention will be given to the themes of colonization, slavery, culture, and resistance. Students are asked to consider the role European colonization played in shaping Caribbean societies and culture for the bad and the good, and the role of the world's most powerful nations in detracting from the self-determination and global competency of less-developed former colonies. This course seeks to engender cultural competence in students and have them use Caribbean cultures as a lens through which they critically evaluate their racial, ethnic, gendered, national, and socioeconomic selves.
- SOCI 101 is recommended as a prerequisite
- Fulfills "D" and "W" Core Requirements
- Counts toward IR major requirements
- Can be cross-listed as an Ethnic Studies or International Relations class
