Moving Back to Jamaica

A blog about my Move Back to Jamaica after 20+ years of living in the US. Most of the articles focus on the period from 2005-2009 when the transition was new, and at it's most challenging.

New Contributor

As you may have noticed, we have a new and very talented contributor to the blog: Tracy McFarlane.

Here is her bio.



Tracy A. McFarlane

Residence: Kingston, Jamaica (but a country girl at heart)


As the last of five children, born to Jamaican parents who lived in England, the US and Bermuda (together and separately) across the course of their lives, I see movement across geographical space as a very normal part of life. By training, I am a researcher who has interests in social identities & categories, such as race, gender, class, nationality, ethnicity. I like to think, talk and write about how these intersect and influence our behaviours within and across social contexts, like where we live, go to school, work, and take care of our health. For me, where we are matters just as much as who we are, and the two are inextricably interwoven.

Hi,

I am a student at DePaul University at Chicago, IL. My group and I are researching the food industry of Jamaica (especially in Kingston) for a class project. Would it be possible if you help us take a survey? It would help significantly. If you have other Jamaican friends, could you forward this email to them?

Survey: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/PBDR82F

We highly appreciate your help. Thank you.

Melody
