Students will learn about Afro-Caribbean Costa Rican Cultural development in order to prompt an awareness of Afro - Latin and Afro - Caribbean culture and experiences.
Students will:
- emphasize the importance of history in order to understand black culture in present day in Costa Rica, Latin America and the Caribbean.
- discuss present day issues - with special consideration of contemporary issues, such as, poverty, migration, the development of human rights and sustainable development in relation to Caribbean communities.
- discuss the different aspects of Costa Rica's black heritage, cultural evolution, such as social and political organization, economy, traditions, festivities, and people of influence.
- introduce the Caribbean indigenous community dynamics to complement the discussion of social constructs of the "other" in the Caribbean landscape, space and different historical periods.
- explore specific socio-cultural profiles - for example, gender relations within Costa Rican Caribbean culture, and the issue of violence in the city of Limon. This is a social studies and sustainability course, it is elective, theoretical and practical and responds to the professional formation questions: What can history tell us about the experience and development of the Caribbean region´s Afro-descendants and how can this shed light on contemporary cultures, expression and identities? How have the diasporas impacted on the lives of the region? And what are some of the poignant challenges facing the region in relation to development, security, and wellbeing?
