HIST 498 sec. 2ON - BONDAGE, REBELLION, & REVOLUTION: The Caribbean from First Contact to Independence
Turquoise waters, white sand, and palm trees usually come to mind when thinking about the Caribbean, but there are rich histories and vibrant cultures, too. From Europe's first contact to the explosion of slavery on Caribbean sugar plantations, from the Haitian Revolution to the Morant Bay Rebellion, and on to the radical movements for voting rights and independence in the 1900s, this course explores the fascinating and inspiring history of the West Indies. Themes covered in this course will include labor, race, slavery, colonialism, and war. We will look at the history of colonialism and it's legacies as we explore the often overlooked history of the Caribbean.
