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.
