A project for secondary school teachers and university faculty to examine Caribbean literature and culture in two two-week summer seminars, one summer mini-conference, and three continuity group activities during the academic years.

The study proposed by this grant, "Exploring the Global Caribbean through Literary and Theoretical Texts," (1/16/10-1/15/13) will look at the Caribbean through the lenses of literary and theoretical cultural texts to enable greater understanding of its culture and literature as well as to lay theoretical groundwork for understanding the processes of the transnational transport of peoples, languages, and literatures. The grant will sponsor two week-long Summer Seminars for intensive study of Caribbean literature and theoretical texts and a Mini-Conference on Caribbean Literature and Popular Culture in the third summer. To assure continuity, the grant will also sponsor three Continuity Groups--a Book Club, a Writing Group, and a Curriculum Development Group. As a result of the project, university and secondary school teachers will gain knowledge about important literary and theoretical texts by Caribbean authors related to discovery, colonization, post colonialism, and diaspora.
