The Panama Silver, Asian Gold: Migration, Money, and the Making of the Modern Caribbean course was collaboratively created and taught at Amherst College, University of Florida, and University of Miami in 2013. The new course version, Panama Silver, Asian Gold: Reimagining Diasporas, Archives, and the Humanities, was again collaboratively created and taught at Amherst College, University of Florida, University of Miami, and the University of the West Indies, Cave Hill, Barbados in 2016.
This page provides a guide to the course materials, including teaching materials, sources, and student work and projects (with permissions granted by the faculty and students for sharing these materials to support Caribbean Studies).
This page is being created with all currently available materials; more to be added with the new course version in Spring 2016.
