Culture and Society in the Caribbean: Week 10

This week I became more pre-occupied during the class about how my project would take form as an ethnography, rather than a historical piece.

Q: Interviews of students to see how they build their narrative of identity related to place in the Caribbean.  What stories are prominent? National, transnational, cosmopolitan? …Caribbean event is this Friday.

Q: Financial dependence on foreign investment and continuity with Panama Papers?

Can we see Clinton/Obama support of a Trade Deal with Panama [non-cynically] as a way of propping up the region?

Task: Read an ethnography or two from BEING THERE: The fieldwork encounter and the making of truth. …How are these voices interwoven?
