“Pondicherry to Pointe-à-Pitre: The 9000-Mile Journey of the Indentured Indians”

Mahadevi Ramakrishnan, Senior Lecturer in French, Department of Romance Languages and Literatures

From 1854-1883, thousands of Indian indentured workers were brought to the French Caribbean island of Guadeloupe to work on the sugarcane plantations. The talk will highlight their efforts to navigate between a "Guadeloupean Creole" identity and a more specific "Indian" identity.
