MARTINIQUE SUMMER 2013
ENVIRONMENTAL CULTURAL STUDIES IN THE FRENCH CARIBBEAN
Martinique, a former French sugar colony and present-day French overseas department, is the ideal site to study the
interaction between “nature” and “culture” through the study of the island’s literature, cinema, social and environmental
movements, museums, tourism industry, nature preserves, and public sculpture. We will study the narratives that Martinican
authors, filmmakers and other cultural actors produce about the relation between human activity and the natural environment,
with the aim of understanding the island’s “natural wonders” as markers of Martinique’s cultural history.
