Caribbean Texts and Contexts
Dr. Danette DiMarco
Fall 2007

Caribbean Texts and Contexts course allowed me to explore literary aspects of the graduate degree program at SRU.  Although this course is considered to be more in the Traditional Track rather than the Professional Writing Track for the English graduate program, I have chosen to include it in my portfolio as a demonstration of breadth of knowledge that I obtained as a student in the program.

In the Caribbean Texts and Contexts course, we studied various Caribbean media from colonial and post-colonial times and studied them as cultural artifacts.  The paper below was one of several projects produced throughout the course, but as the final paper it encompasses many of the concepts that we studied during the semester.
