Remi Poindexter

Remi Poindexter is a doctoral candidate at The Graduate Center, CUNY whose research focuses on images of French Caribbean in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. His current projects examine the ways Martinique was constructed as both an exotic and familiar locale for different audiences and across various media. This research intersects with the broader history of Caribbean travel and the depiction—and frequent underrepresentation—of forced labor across the region.
