Day Three in Martinique!

Day Three in Martinique!!

Our first intro to creole class with Professor Dispagne. Creole is a rich language with a deep history rooted in French, English, Spanish and African languages. Since there are so many influences on the creole language there isn’t just one version of creole that exists. There is a version of creole spoken in Haiti, a version of spoken in Trinidad, in Guadeloupe, in st. Lucia, in Réunion just to name a few. Just like the people of Martinique, the unique character of creole comes from its diverse roots

''L'histoire de l'humanité est l'histoire de la migration'' Professor Bernabé presented his work on the concept of identity and the formation of identity. According Professor Bernabé, Identity is not something that can be applied to a people/country because that then suggests that identity is stagnant and can't change. A country's identity changes as its people changes so instead of attributing "identity" to a country we should instead be referring to that idea as cultural personality.
