We are very much looking forward to seeing you (virtually) for the following seminar in which we welcome Professor Francio Guadeloupe.
In the upcoming seminar, Francio Guadeloupe will discuss his book Black Man in the Netherlands: An Afro-Antillean Anthropology.
Francio Guadeloupe shares several chapters of his book in which he dissects specific experiences with racism by engaging with broader concepts of multiculturalism and developments in popular culture.

Francio Guadeloupe is a senior researcher at the Royal Netherlands Institute for Southeast Asian and Caribbean studies (KITLV) in Leiden, and an Associate Professor in Social & Cultural Anthropology at the University of Amsterdam. Guadeloupe has worked at all the major universities in the Netherlands. He served for four years as the President of the University of St. Martin in the Dutch West Indies. Guadeloupe employs popular culture to study how hegemonic and counterhegemonic understandings of national belonging, cultural diversity, religious identity, and mass media constructions of truth continue to be impacted by colonial racisms and global capital. He is the author of the monograph, “Chanting Down the New Jerusalem: Calypso, Christianity, and Capitalism in the Caribbean” (University of California Press, 2009). Guadeloupe is currently embarking on a study of climate challenges in the (Dutch)Caribbean from a popular culture and cultural perspective.
Those who want to prepare can read chapters 4-7 from Guadeloupe's book.
We are meeting on Zoom at 3:30 Netherlands time. The Zoom link and chapters have been distributed via our email list. If you would like to receive it (again), please email [email protected].
