Program description:

Nestled at the end of the southern Caribbean’s glittering chain, are the two lush tropical islands (one nation) of Trinidad and Tobago. Immerse yourself in the rhythms, festivals, and traditions of this complex Caribbean society. The people and customs of Trinidad and Tobago emerge from a rich tapestry of race, religion, class, and culture, from various blends of the indigenous Amerindians, of Africans, East Indians, Spanish, French, British, Chinese, Syrian, among others. During this Maymester program (May 2014), students will examine the role of colonialism, cultural history, and social policy in influencing the prevailing societal issues in the Caribbean. In addition, they will explore various agency programs, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), and indigenous projects, which are actively responding to the region’s major social service needs.
