CLTR 1005, Material culture and Identity in the Caribbean draws from a wide range of approaches to explore material constructions signifying identity, culture, race, nationhood memory and heritage.

At the heart of Material Culture is what physical variables mean to the people who have been entrusted to preserve them.

Material culture range from built heritage to food, dress to religious materials, from cultural artefacts and objects to art and paintings

But material culture is so much more than the physical-tangible constructs of identity etc.

Material culture also deals with the non-material that manifests as concrete constructs!
