This interdisciplinary project workshop focused on Imoinda: Or She Who Will Lose Her Name by Joan Anim-Addo.
The initial concept behind the development of this site is to create an on-line resource for Caribbean Creole language learners.
We are the only Caribbean-led Research and Resource Centre within a university. We document, promote and foster the history of Caribbean culture locally and globally.
The Centre for Caribbean and Studes (CDDS) is a leading international Resource and Research Centre for the study, promotion and dissemination of Caribbean and Diaspora culture. We continue to develop, with a range of contemporary practitioners including writers, performers, oral historians, and technologists, the representation and promotion of Caribbean cultural knowledge and heritage in the UK, and internationally. We do this through an exploration of historical and contemporary cultural practices throughout the globe. We inspire and provoke critical discussion to promote the Centre’s aims.
