Literatures in English

"Literature is the most beautiful of countries." José Martí.

Welcome! The aim of the Literatures in English section is to provide a creative and academically sound programme of teaching and research designed to produce students who are capable of critical thinking as well as analysis and production of literary expressions.

Our programme is designed to facilitate academic interface with the programmes of other Academic Sections, Units, Centres, and Departments across The University of the West Indies. Our outreach activities and programmes aim to promote awareness of literary and social issues within the University community and in relation to the general public.
