Rex Nettleford, His Works: An Annotated Bibliography

By Albertina Jefferson | Go to book overview

PREFACE

Very few scholars have contributed as much as Rex Nettleford to defining a Caribbean identity and world view born of the experiences of Caribbean peoples and suffused with their creativity, dignity and struggle for intellectual, cultural and political independence. Nettleford's importance to the Caribbean derives from the fact that his master project in life has been the decolonization of the Caribbean spirit and imagination. His writings and lectures reflect a profound conviction in the creative power of the peoples of the region, a power struggling to unleash itself from the conjunction of historical and neo-colonial forces. Nettleford sees a harmony between his academic and artistic interests, saying that they "complement each other in a very important way." He advocates a parallel between the emotion as expressed in the dance and that expressed in political decision-making. Nettleford's intellectual and artistic contributions to the issue of black identity in the Western world, as well as his understanding of the role of culture in development, generally, have earned him respect throughout the Americas, in Europe and Africa.

A call from the Faculty of Social Sciences in collaboration with the Institute of Caribbean Studies at the University of the West Indies, Mona invited participants to a Conference on Caribbean Culture to honour Professor Rex Nettleford for his outstanding achievements in the area of Caribbean culture and identity. The Conference which was to be held at the University's Mona Campus -- Jamaica, 4-6 March 1996 seemed an opportune moment for the librarians at that campus, in keeping with their mission to produce tools to assist in the control and management of documentation, to document his academic and artistic career. Such a bibliography was designed to guide and assist researchers on Caribbean topics in the task of identifying published and unpublished works by Nettleford relevant to their interest. Further, it is hoped that the bibliography will facilitate the researcher in determining the dominant trends in Nettleford's pursuit in identifying the development needs of the Caribbean.
