Meet The Real Me The Library of American Comics Caribbean Cultural Studies: Marsha Pearce “Caribbean” is a root word. “Caribbean” is also a “route” (Stuart Hall) word – it can offer one way to travel; one path in practices of self-articulation. When you add the suffix “-ness” to the root/route, the resultant word is one that compels you to confront a condition of being – that condition or quality of “being Caribbean.” What then is Caribbeanness? What characterises or constitutes being Caribbean?

ProMED-mail | ProMED-mail Caribbean Religion: Rastafarianism | caribbean-guide.info Although the Caribbean has been, since the earliest days of European conquest, nominally Christian, the black power movements of the early 1900s helped launch a completely different kind of religion. Based on Christianity and the King James Bible, Rastafarian beliefs also include the worship of Ras (meaning Prince) Tafari of Ethiopia. This movement began in Jamaica, though it has since spread throughout the Caribbean, in fact, practitioners can be found around the globe. Selassie, however, was not just any man. Although most beliefs are considered Christian, the Rastafarian movement associates Africa with heaven. Political Leanings The Rastafarian movement in Jamaica, like most movements on the island, became linked with politics. In 1958, one leader, Emmanuel Edwards, "took" Kingston, and followers waited with him for ships to appear to return them to Ethiopia. However, "yard" Rastas were the more radical sect.

7 tips to increase your online media literacy Is your BS detector optimized to deal with the new realities of democratic media?

Definitions that catagorize by type of activity involve denotations that include “a comparative study (of musical systems and cultures).” Nettl states that all musicologists, “at some level of conceptualization, they regard all musics as equal.
