The Cultural Work

Maroon Performance in Paramaribo, Suriname

The politics & poetics of cultural representation in a multiethnic city

How do people in an intensely multicultural city live alongside one another while maintaining clear boundaries? This question is at the core of The Cultural Work, which illustrates how the Maroons (descendants of escaped slaves) of Suriname and French Guiana, on the northern coast of South America, have used culture-representational performance to sustain their communities within Paramaribo, the capital. Focusing on three collectives known locally as "cultural groups," which specialize in the music and dance traditions of the Maroons, it marks a vital contribution to knowledge about the cultural map of the African diaspora in South America, Latin America, and the Caribbean.

About the Author

Corinna Campbell received her PhD from Harvard University in 2012 and is assistant professor of music at Williams College.

"Read this book! Through humble storytelling and analysis about Maroon culture, Campbell guides readers through the challenges of comprehending cultural complexity, introducing 'technologies of differentiation' and the varied meanings of performance 'labor.'"—Tomie Hahn, author of Sensational Knowledge: Embodying Culture through Japanese Dance
