Reflections on Innovation: The TMRU Story

This is the first in the UWI Museum’s Innovators and Inventors Series which showcases, collects (through objects, photographs and audiovisual material) and records the work of scholars and activists who have shaped the research agenda and output of the UWI.

Through the Eyes of the Youth

What do you see when you look at Historic Ruins? Do you see the colors that once brilliantly glowed under the sun or do you just see an old dull structure from a time before your existence? How does an individual’s background shape his or her vision and interpretation of historic sites? It is said that a picture can tell a thousand words but how many more words can a painting tell, if any at all?

A/V: GROWING UP ON WEST ROAD, MONA

Carolyn Chan grew up knowing the Mona Campus of the University of the West Indies as her backyard. She considers herself a ‘West Road-ian’, having literally been born at #2 West Road when her father, Wilfred Chan, was in the Chemistry Department of the UWI Mona Campus. But the family also lived for some years at College Common, the other major housing area on the campus, where the Vice-Chancellor, professors, lecturers and senior administrators lived and where their children remember the 1960s and early 1970s as a time of freedom to roam and grow.
