African and Caribbean Studies[edit]

Hi RedSpider - Happy New Year!

I write to ask if you would be interested in helping create an article on "African and Caribbean Studies", a subject which is being offered in more and more universities throughout the world? I notice from your that you are a Guyanese Wikipedian, so I thought you may be a good person to ask. The reason I wanted to start this article is that I have an interest in Caribbean history and culture, particularly that of Guyana, where I worked for two years. I've created some articles on Guyanese writers, (for example) Wilson Harris, Roy Heath, and Fred D'Aguiar, and while researching the latter, noticed that he had read African and Caribbean Studies at Kent in 1985 (I think that Kent was the first University in England to offer the subject). However, my own expertise lies in computing, engineering and socialist history, so I hope you will be able to assist.

Hope you can help - All the best for 2006! Flag of Ireland.svgCamillusFlag of Scotland.svgtalk 19:52, 3 January 2006 (UTC)

Hi - and thanks for your offer of help. As a start, perhaps you could investigate/research whether UG offers the course, or something similar, and if so, it would be great if you could get a curriculum for any such course.

Hi RS - I've uploaded an animated flag of Guyana - if you're interested in putting it on your user page, just added this: [[Image:GuyanaFlag.gif]]
