This course explores how authors and creators at the edge of empire defy and resist neocolonial gestures and interventions. Students will examine an array of literary and cultural productions from the 19th century to the present, with a special focus on contemporary visual cultures. The aim is to identify the various forms in which coloniality has and is still woven into the social and political fabric of the Caribbean, understanding how this intersects with broader hemispheric issues of race, sexuality, migration, and the environment.
