Histories of Resistance in Jamaica

Histories of Resistance in Jamaica

Learn how you can fulfill a Core 9 or Core 12 or earn upper level English credit while studying in Jamaica with Towson University. Explore Jamaican literature, music, dance, and art by tracing the counter-cultural histories of Maroons (self-emancipated slaves), pirates, and Rastas. Through guest lectures, readings, performances, and site visits, we will consider how diverse ideas about race, spirituality, and class have shaped the culture and politics of Jamaica and the Caribbean. Highlights include a visit to Kingston's Dub Club, Bob Marley's Trench Town Culture Yard, and the Port Antonio seaside. Meet with Maroons in their communities, hike the Blue Mountains, tour the pirate city of Port Royal, view the street art of Fleet Street, and attend a Rasta session.
