Anguillian student recognised with Commonwealth Universities Award

ANGUILLA–Anguillian doctoral student at the University of the West Indies (UWI) Open Campus, Michelle Queeley, is among top students in the International community rewarded for her outstanding academic performance. She has been selected and awarded an Associated Commonwealth Universities (ACU) partial bursary to attend the summer school programme at the Bath Spa University in the UK in August 2017. The programme, which brings together outstanding students from throughout the Commonwealth to discuss multi-disciplinary issues of global importance, is being held under the theme, “Creating Greener Narratives through the Environmental Arts and Humanities.”

  Queeley is one of 45 selected from more than 250 students to participate in the programme. While in the UK, she will join other scholars to explore inter-relationships between humans and other living beings and between cultural practices and environmental problems and look at how these can be examined through different academic disciplines and creative arts. She will engage in interactive workshops, keynote lectures, group project work, and field trips and along with her peers, will work on the creation and depiction of environmental narratives through history, art, music, heritage, literature and tourism.
