Description
Summary:"Caribbean globalizations explores the relations between globalization and the Caribbean since 1492 -- when Columbus first arrived in the region -- to the present day. It aims to help change prevalent ways of thinking, not only about the Caribbean archipelago as a complex field of historical enquiry and cultural production, but also about the nature of globalization. It argues that the region has long been -- and remains -- a theatre of conflict between, as well as a site of emergence for, different forms of globalization. It thereby offers the opportunity to focus research and debate across the interdisciplinary spectrum by reflecting upon and reimagining the idea of globalization in a specifically Caribbean context. It does so at a time when the Caribbean is urgently rethinking its own identity and place in a world where the Western economic of globalization is more in question than ever. Prefaced by the distinguished novelist Patrick Chamoiseau and containing essays by Charles Forsdick, Christopher L. Miller, Patricia Seed, and Mimi Sheller, among other leading scholars within the humanities and social sciences, this book will be required reading for those working on the Caribbean from a variety of perspectives."--
