Speaker information

Professor Anthony Bogues, Brown University

Professor Anthony Bogues (Brown) will review some of the main elements of the different practices of the radical Caribbean intellectual.

This talk will argue that the radical Caribbean intellectual tradition has produced a specific kind of radical intellectual practice in which Africa and questions around human freedom (sometimes both simultaneously) were central to a political imaginary. The talk will seek to locate the Caribbean radical intellectual tradition within a framework of the complex history of thought inaugurated by colonial modernity. The review will focus on the ideas and work of Toussaint L’Ouverture, Marcus Garvey, C.L.R. James, Sylvia Wynter and Walter Rodney.
