Compartive Studies on the Caribbean and Atlantic World


The GECCMA approaches the processes of formation of the Atlantic World and Caribbean through a vision of interconnectedness based on the idea that society generates culture while culture, in turn, is the defining characteristic of societies. Our aim is to study the diverse realities of the Caribbean in a transversal way where comparative analysis leads to the study of singularity.
The principal research lines:
1- Analysis of the functioning of the Atlantic System as caused by the European expansion through its networks and the strategies devised by these networks, and the resulting transfers, changes, adaptations, integrations, racial crossbreeding, and the interculturation and transculturation processes.
2- The Caribbean as an invaluable laboratory in which structures and cultural solutions typical of the Atlantic World were devised and put into practice.
3-Transfer and circulation of ideas and models
