Slave Culture in Martinique

To study the formation of slave culture in the French West Indian colony of Martinique between 1830 and 1848. PI will examine the organization of work and leisure and the day-to-day treatment of the slaves on the plantations: the religious, social, and kinship networks created by the slaves; and the modes of resistance to slavery that were developed. These patterns of cultural life which the slaves developed within the context of the plantation economy are important not only because they allowed the slaves to mitigate their lot, but also because they played a large role in determining the character of the life and community which the slaves developed after emancipation.
