Dr. Enrique Okenve is a Lecturer in History. His recent research has focused on the social and cultural transformations that central African societies experienced as result of the European colonization. In particular, he has examined this process in relation to Equatorial Guinea. He is currently working on a book on identity and political conditions in Equatorial Guinea.
The Department wishes to pay tribute to our dearly departed colleague, Dr. John Campbell. John joined the department in 2001 which he served with devotion for three years. He left Mona in 2004 to take up a position at the Department of History, UWI St. Augustine Campus in his native Trinidad and Tobago.
The 2017 UWI Mona Archaeological Field School continued investigations started in 2016 at areas of significance in the Mona estate works yard, located between the University Chapel and the Visitors’ Lodge.
Fifty years after the riotous events surrounding the banning of historian Walter Rodney turned the Jamaican capital on its head and led to a government lockdown of the University of the West Indies, the UWI Mona Department of History and Archaeology and the UWI Museum are collaborating to explore the moment, its context, and larger meaning through a conference and exhibition.
