Participants will:
• Develop a critical understanding of sexual identity as socially constructed in

relations of discourse and power

• Be able to assess the development of a Caribbean sexuality based on the development of the region’s sexual cultures.

• Examine connections between culture and sexuality through material culture,

especially through exploring the carnivalesque as an idea through which modern Caribbean sexual identity is represented and scripted.
