Sue Ann Barratt

Sue Ann Barratt is a PhD graduate from the Institute for Gender and Development Studies, The University of the West Indies, St. Augustine Campus. Her Interdisciplinary Gender Studies Degree was achieved through a thesis which focused on the relevance of perceptions of gender identity to interpersonal communication conflict. Her previous undergraduate and post- graduate education was centered on communication studies mass media and communication and human communication and political science. Broadly, however, her research interests include human communication in the interpersonal, mass mediated and computer mediated contexts. Cultural studies, especially Trinidad Carnival and the arena of Endurance sports, and Sexuality and Gender studies are also key areas of interest. To explore these areas she focuses on the power of verbal and non-verbal language to construct and mediate shared realities.
