RATIONALE

Caribbean Studies is an interdisciplinary field of study that draws on perspectives, largely from the humanities and social sciences to provide an understanding of Caribbean society and cultures. For the purpose of this syllabus, the Caribbean region is defined in terms of its geography, common historical experiences, cultural identities, participation in the global community, intermixing of diverse ethnic and racial groups, and its continuing struggle for survival and sovereignty.

The region comprises mainland territories including Belize, Suriname, Guyana; and island states; such as the Lesser and Greater Antilles; the Bahamas, Bermuda, Trinidad and Tobago and the Netherland Antilles. It also includes Caribbean diasporic communities. This interdisciplinary subject provides students with the opportunity to study issues relevant to the distinctive physical, political and socio-economic challenges facing the small states which comprise the region. Such study integrates perspectives from various disciplines including, Cultural Studies and Ethics, Economics, Government and Politics, History, International Relations, Physical and Human Ecology, and Sociology, as tools for understanding Caribbean society and culture.
