1. Turnbull, Randolph. Narrating (Post) Colonial Space: Geographies of Power and Resistance in Martinique and Guadeloupe.

Degree: PhD, Modern Languages and Linguistics, 2012, Florida State University

This work analyzes the intersections between the notions of geography, power, and resistance, specifically focusing on how these concepts produce and are productive of one another within a French Caribbean context. Focusing on the works of authors such as Jean-Baptiste Du Tertre and Édouard Glissant while drawing upon the insights offered by Michel Foucault's discussion on Power, this text analyzes the role of geography and space, from a colonial and post colonial perspective, in shaping and facilitating the colonial thesis (in a Hegelian sense) of power and domination over subaltern groups for economic gain. The work then continues to identify the extent to which particular geographic spaces enabled subaltern groups such as engagé laborers and African slaves to resist colonial power structures. These geographies of resistance, as argued in this work, function as the antithesis of colonial endeavors in the French Caribbean. Finally, the study concludes by seeking to understand the manner in which geographical space can contribute to a power-resistance synthesis.

2. Pereira, Emmanuel. Haitian Immigrants and Their Descendants (HIDS): Cultural Expression Issues and Challenges in Cuba and the Dominican Republic.

Degree: PhD, 2013, Florida State University

ABSTRACT According to sources from the Haitian consulate in both the Dominican Republic and Cuba, there are approximately 800,000 to 1.2 million self-identified HIDs (Haitian immigrants and their descendants) living in each of these nations. HID is an acronym that I employ to highlight the invisibility of Haitian immigrants and their descendants in American societies and cultures. This research is primarily concerned with the effects of migrations from Ayiti (mountainous land) to Cuba (land or great land) and the Dominican Republic, also known as Kiskeya (the cradle of life). The historical impact of Haitian migrations both before and after the U.S. occupations in Cuba and the Dominican Republic is central to this research. HIDs in the Dominican Republic and Cuba had been marginalized by their own governments, and during the period when the United States occupied these Caribbean nations along with Haiti during the early 20th century, a brand of Wilsonian Southern racism, such as that represented in the film "The Birth of a Nation," was layered on the traditional Spanish, French, and English style racisms that were already prevalent prior to the twentieth century. I will argue that HIDs maintained their culture in the diaspora, mainly because of their spiritual rituals, religious services, and related activities, which most of the times involved Kreyols speaking, chanting, and singing during holy days, and music and dance during festivals and holidays, while facing ethnic discrimination in some of their communities. Although my main sourceis my reflexivelyfiltered fieldwork experiences, I will engage Scott's concept of hidden and public transcripts, Bhaktin's thought on dialogism, and Althusser's idea of ideological apparatuses in unpacking HID's cultural expressions and associated responses. Furthermore, because who we are as different ethnic groups are interwoven in our cultural fabrics, maintaining one's cultural identity is a human rights issue. Cultural traditions not practiced by any diaspora are doomed to obsolescence, and mark the onset of cultural genocide. A research participant expressing his sentiments on the importance of keeping one's beliefs explained that to not employ one's traditions in the service of one's ancestral spirits is to obliterate vital aspects of one's existence, which I surmised was essentially ethnospiritual as well as cultural genocide.
