- Faculty & Staff
Scientists from the Faculty of Science and Technology, Dr. Thera Edwards (Department of Geography and Geology) and Dr. Sylvia Mitchell (Biotechnology Centre) as well as Dr. Patricia Northover (SALISES, The UWI) and Dr. Nicole Plummer (Institute for Cultural Studies, The UWI) in partnership with researchers from the University of Edinburgh (Dr. Marisa Wilson and Dr. Katherine Crowley) earned a research grant from the UK Arts and Humanities Research Council. The grant was received for the project, Recipe for Resilience (RFR): Engaging Caribbean Youth in Climate Action and Afrodescendant Food Heritage through Story Mapping and Song. The project will be executed through a number of workshops that will re-connect Caribbean youth to their elders through activities that encourage young people to reflect on their own food behaviours, how they may differ from older people, and why these changes matter in the context of climate adaptation, resilience, and justice for Caribbean peoples of African descent.
