Dr. Humphrey A. Regis, School of Communication professor, has authored a chapter in the book, Envisioning the Greater Caribbean. Dr. Regis argues that the idea of “creolization” as defined and interpreted in the region, normalizes the devaluation, dehumanization and even demonization of the African part of the Caribbean heritage, and this normalization takes a tremendous toll on the psychological health of the people of the region. His theory appears in the book’s chapter. CARMWAC, MASSAHIANISM and Caribbean Creolism.
Dr. Regis challenged and complemented current or prominent perspectives on the relationship between mass communication and cultural domination in the book, How American Reggae Redefined Jamaican and Caribbean Reggae: A Theoretical Study of the Relationship Between Mass Communication and Cultural Domination. He argued that the “reggae revolution” in Jamaica and the Caribbean in the 1970s represented both the continuation of colonial domination and another manifestation of the neo-colonial domination of the island and the region by Europe and North America.
