Program Overview:
Experience the cultural hybridity of this former French colony--once the lucrative (and exploitative) site of sugarcane production, now a full-fledged department of France proud of its heritage, but still struggling to assert its political autonomy. Classroom curriculum includes the study of French language through locally produced texts--the popular press, poetry, a novel, and films, as well as lectures by specialists on local history, economy, geography, religious traditions; on-site learning includes hikes through natural habitats, guided visits to important historical locales, and encounters with a variety of Martiniquais, not least through a home stay with a local family.
