WHY WORLD WAR 2?

Why are we looking at World War 2 Internment Camps as part of our May 18 International Museum Day (IMD) focus this year? 

UWI&The1960s: THE CLR JAMES MOMENT!

CLR James has been the focus of our latest UWI and the 1960s occasional series – in which the University of the West Indies Museum and the UWI Mona’s Department of History & Archaeology explore the university’s connections with regional and international philosophies and icons during that dynamic decade.

GETTING OUT THERE

So here’s what just landed on the desk: A hot-off-the-press copy of a new book titled: Positioning Your Museum as a Critical Community Asset. A Practical Guide. And the part that makes us proud – We’re in it!

HELMET HISTORY

The University (College) of the West Indies came into being in the aftermath of World War II (1939-1945), on the grounds of a military camp which had taken over the grounds of a previous civilian evacuee and refugee camp. Indeed the soldiers moved off the site at the end of 1947 to make room for the university’s advent; and the name Gibraltar Camp is still part of the UWI heritage.
One tangible artefact at the UWI Museum helps tell that story, hence its value is significant though it is one of millions produced.
