This course introduces students to theories of Cultural Studies generally and the terrain of Caribbean Cultural Studies specifically. It highlights the main cultural practices in the Caribbean with particular emphasis on Jamaica, and relates them to the study of culture in general. Students are expected to analyse the impact of race, class and gender experiences in Caribbean cultural practices, and to interpret cultural expression in its broadest political sense. Students are expected to show familiarity with the leading intellectual interpretations of Caribbean culture.
