A love letter to fruit and family | An almanac for Caribbean futures

This multi-modal essay, by co-investigator Dr Schuyler Esprit – originally shared with the Ecologies Entrelacées seminar at Columbia University – traces an itinerary through Dominican agrarian and family history, rushing waterways, banana booms, intergenerational transitions, homes, maroon landscapes and crises. The work meditates on the possibility of Caribbean futures through deep engagement with past survivals, knowledge and cosmology.
