Jerome Camal is an assistant professor in the Department of Anthropology at UW-Madison. In this talk, he will explain how history in the French Caribbean island of Guadeloupe is a terrain of negotiations and contestations that are essential to understanding the experience of French postcoloniality. In Guadeloupe, doing “memory work” is central to presenting a postcolonial narrative that disturbs the official state-sanctioned historiography.
