In this episode of the History Watch Podcast series, you will hear Bridget Brereton who is Professor (Emerita) of the University of the West Indies in Trinidad as she is being interviewed by Professor David Trotman of York University.
The two discuss a number of themes including the politics of history, reparations for slavery, Caribbean regionalism, and the link between public history and collective memory.
This is the second year that the History Watch Project has published a podcast on Caribbean history that coincides with the annual conference of the Association of Caribbean Historians. We are going to try to commit to interviewing key members of the association each year in support of the excellent work being done by its members. This year the annual meeting of the association is being held in Curacao.
