‘Crime and its Representation in the Anglophone Caribbean’ is an international research network funded by the
British Academy (2016-2019). The principal investigator is Dr Lucy Evans, School of English, University of Leicester, and the co-investigator is Professor Anthony Harriott, Institute of Criminal Justice and Security and
Department of Government, University of the West Indies, Mona, and the network administrator is Kelsyn
Delaney, School of Arts, University of Leicester.
Bringing together participants from Jamaica, Trinidad, Guyana, Barbados and the UK, the project addresses the acute
and complex problem of crime in Anglophone Caribbean societies from various disciplinary perspectives. It aims to
develop our understanding of the historical, cultural, political and socioeconomic contexts of crime in the region
by bringing social science researchers into dialogue with arts and humanities researchers.
Network members will participate in a series of workshops and associated events which will take
place in Jamaica, Trinidad and the UK. To find out more about the network, contact Lucy Evans.
