The convergence of entertainment, media, technology and culture industries has created a phenomenon that generates more than US$1.5 trillion dollars annually. The Caribbean stands as one of the most dynamic creators of these creative products and services and therefore holds a significant stake in these content-driven industries. This course seeks to introduce students to selected Caribbean cultural industry areas of the arts, music, live and media entertainment among others. Students will be exposed to the operation of these areas in the Caribbean and will be expected to critically assess the contribution cultural enterprises can make to the region.
