The Caribbean
Oral Tradition

About this website

My name is Eric Doumerc and I teach English at the University of Toulouse-Jean Jaurès, in Toulouse, south-western France.
My research interests are mainly Caribbean poetry in English and Caribbean musical forms. 

This website is basically an attempt at gathering in one place the various strands of my research into Caribbean poetry over the last thrity years. So you’ll find book reviews, interviews with Caribbean poets, a few articles about Jamaican deejays (Jamaican deejaying can be considered as a form of oral poetry), and a shameless attempt at self-promotion (the “My Books” page).
