02:00PM 03:00PM Créolité & Coolitude: The Indian on the Plantation: University Event Topic: Humanities School: Emory College Department / Organization: English Department,French & Italian Department Building/Room: White Hall Meeting Organizer/Sponsor: The Department of French and Italian and the Global and Postcolonial Studies Program Speaker/Presenter: Ananya Jahanara Kabir Event Open To: All (Public) Cost: Free Contact Name: Amandine Ballart Contact Email: aballa3@emory.edu The abolition of slavery worldwide in course of the 18th century was followed by the creation of a new source of plantation labor through various inter-imperial collaborations: indentured workers from Asia. The indentured labor diasporas that were superimposed on existent African-heritage and creole populations created through slavery, introduced new demographic and cultural elements; these, in turn, have generated specific consequences within the project of creolization that the Plantation catalyzed. What are the memorial repercussions of the Indian on the Plantation? Using the concepts of ‘Créolité’ (as developed by Chamoiseau, Barnabé, and Confiant), and ‘Coolitude’ (as developed by Khal Torabully), I reveal how cultural and curatorial practices from the Indian Ocean and the Caribbean are grappling with the re-calibration of the Plantation’s symbolic economy necessitated by the entangled memories of the ‘coolie’, the ‘master’, and the ‘slave’.
