REL 19.25 Religions of the Caribbean

This is an introductory course that explores African-derived religious practices of the Caribbean. Drawing on works of fiction, social science and historical studies, the course uses the African and Caribbean diaspora as analytical frameworks to understand the role of religion in diasporic communities. The course will explore the effect of New World slavery and migration and the process of creolization on Afro-religious practices. While the course focuses predominantly on the English-speaking Caribbean, we will also examine traditions in the French- and Spanish-speaking Caribbean, including Brazil. Open to all.

Distributive and/or World Culture


The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
