On Tuesday, April 7, Sam McCalla defended her masterful dissertation, “Colonial Education and Caribbean Literature in C.L.R James and George Lamming,” in which she discussed how British colonial education both forms and rejects Anglophone Caribbean Black subjects. Dr. McCalla’s areas of expertise include Caribbean intellectual history, Caribbean literature, Africana philosophy, Black Feminist Theory, and Critical Ethnography.
Dr. McCalla was smart, sharp, and deeply thoughtful in her comments. Dr. McCalla’s committee was chaired by Dr. Shanté Paradigm Smalls,, along with Drs. Anne Gellar and Raj Chetty as mentors. Please join me in congratulating Dr. McCalla!
