• Ethnographic Study in Kingston Jamaica
  • Tashanna Walker

This summer, with the support of the 2023 MaGrann Research Award, I was able to visit the Archives and Records Department in Spanish Town Jamaica for two weeks to conduct critical archival research. During these two weeks I was able to unpack Jamaica’s long and complex history of resistance, place-making and belonging using material neatly preserved in its archives. The findings from this short but impactful fieldwork will be used to supplement data collected in 2020-21 during my year-long ethnographic study in Kingston Jamaica
