Seminar Series for Graduate Students: Growing Pains. Haitianness in the Making of Martinican Identity.
Wednesday, March 22, 2017
Kaneff Tower 857
12:00 – 2:00
All are welcome!
While Martinicans recognize and value their shared history, culture, and language with Haiti, there is still a distinct downward gaze towards Haitians in Martinique. Alyssa James will discuss her ethnographic research with Martinican and Haitian farmers in a wholesale produce market and the connection to the way in which Martinicans - French citizens in an overseas department - identify themselves within the Caribbean.
