The Many Facets of Mervyn C. Alleyne: A Commemorative Conference
07-08 June 2019 - UWI, Mona Campus, Jamaica

This conference was designed to commemorate the life and work of Professor Mervyn Coleridge Alleyne, a distinguished scholar who died on November 23, 2016, aged 83. He is one of the earliest scholars of Caribbean origin to engage in the discipline of Linguistics and has made original and valuable contributions to that discipline as well as to a range of others associated with the study of the Caribbean. The conference was held at the Mona Campus of The University of The West Indies, the institution with which he had been associated practically all of his adult life.
