Masterclass Series: Gender and Sexuality in the Caribbean Context


  • Room K.2 University of Curaçao Curaçao (map)

The masterclasses examine a range of social, historical, political and cultural issues through the lenses of sexuality and gender with specific reference to the Dutch Caribbean. They seek to offer participants some academic grounding in concepts and concerns related to gender and sexuality in their various dimensions. While the main regional focus is the Dutch Caribbean, the course will also draw on scholarship from the broader Caribbean, Latin America and other parts of the world.

The masterclasses will be conducted by stellar international and local guest scholars.
