Caribbean Stories Across Borders: A Workshop

Thursday 9 November 2023 at 12:00 pm to 2:30 pm

How can we have broader stories about the Caribbean across borders, whether those be boundaries of empire, language or discipline, and within academia, educational institutions and beyond? We will be thinking through these questions with visiting scholar Orlando Deavila Pertuz, from the International Institute of Caribbean Studies, Universidad de Cartagena, Colombia.

What stories are told about the Caribbean? What do these narratives exclude? How can we broaden the story? And how can we teach a wider vision of the Caribbean to students of all ages and wider publics? Orlando will share his experiences from researching, teaching, and his public history work in Cartagena Colombia, followed by an interdisciplinary round table from colleagues in Anthropology, Education, English, and HiPLA.
