CORE C146 - Haiti

Students seek to understand the lived experiences of Haitians in Haiti and other particular geographically distinct regions of the world, with a focus on different enclaves in the Dominican Republic and United States. Students critically examine the multiple forms of social life and analyze the ways in which Haitian society functions as a unified whole and yet encompasses multiple, sometimes conflicting identities (based, for example, on gender, race, color, status, class, religion, and immigration status). Interdisciplinary in focus and materials, students study the geography, history, politics, sociology, and economics of the country as well as its languages, literature, film, art, music, and religions. Students will develop a comparative, historical frame of reference between Haiti and the communities to which they belong.
