Academic Integrity in the Caribbean
Plagiarism Policies, Perception, Prevalence and Possible Solutions
Author: Ruth Baker-Gardner
Academic integrity is key to the reputation of higher education institutions. Plagiarism, the most frequently occurring form of academic misconduct, poses a signiﬁcant threat to the maintenance of academic integrity globally, but it has received very little attention in the research literature of the Caribbean. This work is valuable to higher education administrators, faculty and students. It provides the ﬁrst in-depth examination of plagiarism regionally, and includes relevant information and strategies aimed at helping the region to transition from the current punitive approach to plagiarism management to a culture of academic integrity.
Contact Languages and Music
Editors: Andrea Hollington, Joseph T. Farquharson and Byron M. Jones Jr.
Language and music are connected in many ways. As social and cultural practices, they have been intertwined in multiple ways. Musical and linguistic practices are often intertwined to express distinct and complex identities, attitudes, ideologies, social roles and political views. This volume is the first book-length account of contact languages and music. It offers a stimulating collection of contributions on different territories, multiple musical genres and topics, and various methodological approaches. The chapters address myriad topics such as nationality, ethnicity, identity, gender, migration and diaspora.
