CAR 310 - Caribbean History and Cultures (or Sweet Power: Sugar, Empires, and Slaves in the Caribbean)


Sweet Power is a three-week, six-credit study abroad course. The class takes place in Puerto Rico (Spanish and American empires), Curaçao (Dutch slave trade), and Barbados (English sugar plantation system). The Caribbean is an amalgam of five continents: Africa, Europe, North America, South America, and Asia. It is an archipelago of the world’s cultures, mixed and remixed by time, economics, and power. Studying the historic and contemporary Caribbean is a route toward greater understanding of world history.
