Queen’s College people – commentary

Queen’s College people

Queens College Pix revised

By all accounts, last week’s Queen’s College Old Students’ Association (QCOSA) reunion, marking the 170th anniversary of the founding of QC, was a great success, with old boys and, significantly, an impressive number of old girls, gathering to relive the carefree days of their youth and to celebrate the institution that laid the foundation for their many and varied achievements.

Predictably, the reunion was a wonderful occasion for wallowing in nostalgia, particularly for those alumni who had travelled from overseas and who enjoyed several opportunities not only to revisit their beloved school and rekindle old friendships but also, for many, to reacquaint themselves with contemporary Guyana, much changed from the time when they emigrated.

The Diaspora Reconsidered: A Guyanese Perspective – By Lear Matthews

The Diaspora Reconsidered: A Guyanese Perspective

Lear Matthews

Reacting to this writer’s views about the need to strengthen Caribbean Diaspora Associations, an esteemed commentator advanced the notion that “We should not bank too heavily on an unending outreach to the land of our birth. The Diaspora is a slow diminution”. (H. Williams, Guyanese-On-Line 9/14).

However, contrary to that dismal prognosis, I argue that the Caribbean Diaspora is unlikely to diminish, rather it will expand. It is not a time-phased, amorphous process that faces extinction, but will increase exponentially with continuous immigration flows.  The term Diaspora describes the dispersion of a defined group of people of similar ethnicity, nationality or cultural background. They tend to strive for a common identity, group consciousness and often collaborate on causes of interest to themselves and those they believe they represent. Contemporary social analysts have asserted that Diasporas have a significant function of sustaining strong social, economic, cultural, political and emotional bonds to their country of origin.
