Florida and the Caribbean: Historic Ties and Cultural Connections

FAIN: BC-50389-07

Florida Humanities Council (St. Petersburg, FL 33701-5005)
Janine Farver (Project Director: May 2007 to June 2011)

Projects exploring the relationship between Florida and the Caribbean including speakers bureau programs, a grants initiative and a teachers seminar.

This interdisciplinary exploration of the relationship between Florida and the Caribbean explores both the historical and cultural connections between the two regions, prompting the question: Is Florida the southernmost state of the United States or the northernmost province of the Caribbean? An issue of FHC’s statewide magazine, FORUM, will be developed on the topic along with Speakers Bureau programs, a grants initiative, and a teachers seminar.
