DMLL Research Notes

Research Notes Vol 4, 2017

ISSN 2519-5123 (Online)

The DMLL Research Notes serial was borne out of a vision to share the research work of the Department's staff and students (both undergraduate and postgraduate).

Each issue focuses on staff publications and conferences, features a interview with or a profile of a member of staff, and details abstracts of MPhil and PhD theses, as well as abstracts of final year undergraduate projects, and highlights academic programmes and co-curricular student events.

Here are the most recent issues:

DMLL Research Notes Issue No. 4 features the work of Prof Elizabeth Walcott-Hackshaw, academic and writer (novels and short stories). Prof Walcott-Hackshaw gives us insight into her creative writing process, and a peek into her new collection of short stories.

DMLL Research Notes Issue No. 3 features the work of Dr Jo-Anne Ferreira (Senior Lecturer in Linguistics) on the Portuguese language in Trinidad & Tobago, and her involvement in continuing the development of Lusophone Studies (especially Brazilian Studies) here at UWI, St Augustine.

DMLL Research Notes Issue No. 2 pays a tribute to recently retired Professor Valerie Youssef, and her diverse and impactful career in Linguistics, at the St Augustine campus of the UWI, focusing particularly on her theory of varilingualism and many more contributions.

DMLL Research Notes Issue No. 1 reflects on the innovative research and publications of Professor Béatrice Boufoy-Bastick in the theory and field of Culturometrics, developed by Prof Boufoy-Bastick herself, as the theory applies to language, education, culture and more.
