Analyze the relationship between geography and identity, focusing on a named Caribbean country or territory. Introduction: - Definition of the geographical location of a country. - Definition of identity of a country -There is a relationship between geography and identity relating the geographical location of the country, the historical processes involved, as well as the political status of the country. (Thesis statement) Body: 1. (Highlighting the geographical location and concept of St. Lucia as it relates to other Caribbean countries.).St. Lucia lies on the Caribbean plate and is washed by the Caribbean Sea. Therefore the country fulfills the criteria of the geographical concept of the Caribbean. Consequently, it is possible for St. Lucians refer to refer to themselves as Caribbean people. 2. (Highlighting how the historical process defines the identity of St. Lucia with respect to its geographic location.) The history of St Lucia is shared with other neighboring Caribbean islands. The history comprises enduring colonization, indentureship and slavery. (Indentureship by European powers such as the French, Spanish, Dutch and English.) Based on the historical definition of the Caribbean, St. Lucians can be identified as Caribbean people. 3. The political status of St. Lucia is that they are a member of the British Commonwealth. This fact hinders the country's geographical location as well as the historical processes involved because despite being located within the borders of the geographical Caribbean, St. Lucia is still considered part of the United States due to their signatures on several treaties, now benefitting from cooperative relations. Conclusion: The geographical location of St. Lucia only defines the country’s identity to a certain extent.
