Beyond a Vacation: The Past and Present Caribbean
Wednesday | April 26th | 12-1 PM | Hameetman Multipurpose Room Lunch Provided | RSVP Requested
Beneath images of turquoise beaches and serene getaways, the modern Caribbean hides a complex mixture of colonialist histories and modern progress. As the region seeks to assert its place in the contemporary economy, it is also working to adapt to global interconnectedness, newfound freedom, climate change, economic realignment, diaspora and other challenges. Join Caltech Graduate Student Jordan Benjamin as he recounts his journey across the Caribbean to learn a little bit about his own history and life in the islands today.
