Caribe, corazón de la modernidad
MetadataShow full item record
The essay is an attempt to construct another perspective on modernity from the Caribbean. Seeking to understand a long-term history - in which the Haitian Revolution and the Cuban Revolution emerge as interpretive keys - themes, categories and fundamental concepts of the description of modern world are revisited. Thus, Caribbean flows are brought to face the silences, pauses and counter-rhythms articulated in the hegemonic narratives about the West, and to think of another global history open to the political polyphony engendered by imperialist expansion and by its anticolonial resistance.
