Abstract

Plantation to Nation: Caribbean Museums and National Identity explores the evolution of Caribbean museums from colonial-era institutions that supported imperialistic goals to today's museums that aim to recover submerged or marginalized histories, assert national identities and celebrate cultural diversity. This book is the first to focus on the growth and development of Caribbean museums and museology, to address museums across the region regardless of nation or language, and to allow for much-needed discourse on their evolution. Museologists from across the region and internationally address the challenges faced by museums in the Caribbean, both historically and in the contemporary setting.
