HIGHER LEARNING: On Thursday, Nov. 29, Prof. Carolyn Cooper will deliver the Sixth Edward Baugh Distinguished Lecture at UWI Mona’s Phillip Sherlock Centre for the Creative Arts, commencing at 6:00 pm. She will speak on the topic “Islands Beyond Envy: Finding Our Tongue in the Creole-Anglophone Caribbean”. Hosted annually as an open-to-the-public event, the Edward Baugh Distinguished Lecture is put on by the university’s Department of Literatures in English in honour of Prof. Emeritus Edward Baugh, the distinguished academic and poet who has garnered an international reputation as an authority on Anglophone Caribbean poetry in general and on the work of Derek Walcott in particular. Previous speakers in the series include Trinidadian writer Earl Lovelace and Guyanese author/scholar Mark McWatt. As it turns out, Cooper is an outstanding former student of Professor Baugh, and the lecture series is her brainchild.
