Prudence Layne interviewed on Jamaican Radio program

Associate Professor of English Prudence Layne, coordinator of the university's African & African-American Studies program, was interviewed on the live radio show “Both Sides of the Story,” a program that is broadcasted live on Power 106 FM radio in Jamaica.

Host Dervan Michael discussed Layne’s paper presentation at the Mico Research Day on April 9, 2014, and her perceptions of higher education in Jamaica.

Coming from the Caribbean nation of Barbados and having taught in Kingston, Layne brought a perspective and Caribbean dimension to her paper titled “Transforming Higher Education: Restructuring Space and Minds.” The paper forms part of the chapter from her forthcoming book, Global Innovation of Teaching & Learning in Higher Education: Transgressing Boundaries (London: Springer Press, 2014).
