Thesis Submission


In December 2015, I finally submitted my thesis to fulfill the requirements for a PhD in Cultural Studies at the University of the West Indies, Mona campus.  The thesis is now with the examiners and once those reports are submitted, I will prepare for the oral defense.

There were times, where I felt that completion was impossible, but now that I  have submitted, I feel a sense of relief but nervous at the same time.  It also seems unbelievable that I have actually finished (for now)…

Here is the abstract of the thesis:

  1. Hello Kai Barratt,
    I read with interest your article and profile. I’m a Trini currently living and working in Jamaica; lecturing at Edna Manley College’s School of Drama. Like you I have a serious interest in mas, carnival etc.
    Would love to connect given my research and some ideas I have for projects while I’m here. Looking forward to making contact.
    And every success with the thesis.
    Best regards,
    Marvin George
