Description: Colonization, slavery, and climate change have violently disrupted the relationship between humans and nature in the Caribbean. We will examine colonial diaries, memoirs of the Haiti earthquake and Haitian ‘salvage art’, reef restoration art, and stories about food and history (and more!) to explore creative responses to this ecological vulnerability.
