Caribbean: Some History

During Fall Semester 2016, the IDEA LAB in GWB Building, University of Texas at Austin, showed This Ground Beneath My Feet – A Chorus of Bush in Rab Lands, an exhibit by Annalee Davis, one of Barbados’ leading artists. In recognition of this, the Fine Arts Library (FAL) mounted a display, assembled by Eddie Chambers, of the Department of Art and Art History, Caribbean: Some History, which contained various publications relating to different aspects of the Caribbean, a region of the world that was, until relatively recently, more commonly referred to as the West Indies. It is a region of the world rich in many different histories. Religion, music, literature, art, and sport were amongst the many fascinating subjects of the books and other publications in this display.
