Cultural Heritage: Perspectives from the Caribbean

The workshop aims at approaching the contested heritage of slavery and memory politics in the Caribbean states from an interregional and multidisciplinary perspective, including history, social and cultural anthropology, and social sciences. It asks key questions such as: What role does transatlantic slavery play in the cultural heritage of the cities and rural communities? Which legacies are identified and remembered in public or private spaces – and how, where, by whom, and for what purpose? To what extent is the public commemoration of colonizers and enslavers by means of statues, national holidays or school books contested? How does the contested heritage relate to the memory sites dedicated to the enslaved and to those who fought slavery and colonial oppression?
