Faculty Talk with Corinna Campbell
"Performing Multi-Cultural Nationalism in Suriname"

Campbell Profile PicProfessor Corinna Campbell presents an informal talk concerning the multiple and often contradictory ways in which ethnic diversity and ideas of social unity shape the experience and expression of nationalism in Suriname.  Using examples from her most recent research, she illustrates how ‘unity’ is represented in various national culture projects.  With the ethnic categories that comprise Suriname’s multi-ethnic cultural narrative presently experiencing rapid change, these performed demonstrations of both unity and cultural difference have far-reaching implications.
