Tulane University is pleased to offer students the opportunity to study in Trinidad and Tobago, the home of Carnival, calypso, steelband, chutney and Hosay, during the summer of 2005 (July 10th - August 6th). Students will have a unique opportunity to observe and study the music, cultural performances, and art of this twin-island English-speaking Caribbean state. Guest lectures by local specialists in conjunction with visits to historical sites and art galleries will enhance the course offerings, which include classes in visual culture, performance, and the cross-cultural influences of African Caribbean music. Classes will be held and students will be housed at the University of the West Indies, St. Augustine campus, which is a fifteen-minute ride from downtown Port-of-Spain. Pamela Franco, Assistant Professor of Art History at Tulane and a native of Trinidad and Tobago, will lead the program.
