  • Mental Health and Negative Sexual Experiences of Bahamian University

    • Authors: Elizabeth J. Williams, William J. Fielding, Virginia C. Ballance
      Pages: 1 - 18
      Abstract: This study investigates the mental health of victims of sexual abuse, particularly rape, in college student populations. The study identifies the connection between sexual abuse/rape and elevated scores of mental health. It indicates that even with other stressful events occurring in the lives of respondents, sexual abuse/rape has a detrimental effect on the mental health of both males and females. A death in the family was the most commonly reported stressful event for males and females, and females were more likely than males to have suffered from a sexual attack. Early negative experiences of sexual intercourse can apparently have long lasting negative effects on the victim’s mental health. These findings require society to look beyond the physical consequences of sexual abuse and rape to ensure that the long-term mental health of victims, both male and female children and adults, is not overlooked.

  • The Role of Leadership in Bahamian Special Economic Zones

    • Authors: Kemie Alexander Jones
      Pages: 19 - 36
      Abstract: During Edward St. George’s tenure as co-chair of the Grand Bahama Port Authority, he was credited with providing a unique blend of leadership traits which resulted in the city of Freeport’s growth. While a great deal of research has been conducted on the role of economic variables in special economic zone growth, little analysis has been conducted on the role of leadership. This paper reviews relevant theories on leadership styles and uses a case study research method to develop a leadership profile of Edward St. George as compared to three of his immediate successors in leading the Grand Bahama Port Authority. The results indicate that core tenets of St. George’s leadership were authentic and transformational leadership styles, which were less emphasized by his successors. The results of this paper indicate greater consideration should be placed on these humanistic leadership styles in selecting Grand Bahama Port Authority leadership, in order to encourage greater inclusion and special economic zone growth.

  • Microplastics in The Bahamas: A Reconnaissance Quantifying the Prevalence
           on Selected Beaches in New Providence.

    • Authors: Jonopia Andrea Fernander, Kristen Welsh Unwala
      Pages: 37 - 46
      Abstract: Plastic substances, unlike organic materials, disintegrate over long periods of time. After degradation, larger plastic materials that are broken down into smaller pieces ranging in sizes of less than 5 mm are known as microplastics. To investigate microplastics on Bahamian beaches, this reconnaissance study was conducted on a total of three beaches in New Providence: Cabbage Beach, Goodman’s Bay, and Montague Beach. A total of 30 samples were collected, including 10 samples from each beach along the high tide line, and assessed for microplastics. The microplastics were then visualized using a dissecting microscope with a magnification of 25x or greater. In the 30 samples, an average of 13.5 microplastics were identified at Cabbage Beach; an average of 15.8 were identified at Goodman’s Bay, and an average of 16.3 were identified at Montague Beach. Fibres were the most prevalent type of microplastic observed, but film, pellets, and fragments were also identified. As the concern for the environments of Small Island Developing States grows tremendously, the need for research on the behavior and accumulation of microplastics is crucial.

  • Knowledge, Attitudes and Practices of Corporal Punishment in Bahamian

    • Authors: William J. Fielding, Virginia Ballance
      Pages: 47 - 62
      Abstract: In an Internet-based study, 1,583 Bahamian adults living in The Bahamas were asked about their knowledge, attitudes, and practices relating to corporal punishment. The study confirmed the attitudes and practices towards corporal punishment reported in other studies. Both male and female respondents were physically punished as children (92.4% of males and 87.1% of females). The study indicated that a limited number of participants had knowledge of the detrimental effects of corporal punishment; for example, 28% of male and 36.2% of female participants agreed that corporal punishment was associated with learning problems at school. Respondents with more knowledge about the effects of corporal punishment were less likely to use disciplinary methods of concern. There was a strong link between knowledge and attitudes and between attitudes and experiences of physical punishment in the childhood of respondents. The data suggest that education about the detrimental effects of corporal punishment could help to reduce its use and prevent children from suffering the unintended consequences of corporal punishment.

  • The Need for Academic Integrity in Mass Media: A Perspective from Nautical
           Archaeology in The Bahamas

    • Authors: Abigail Darville
      Pages: 63 - 74
      Abstract: The Bahamas has a rich history with nautical archaeology, even if the academic discipline of nautical archaeology is largely unfamiliar to Bahamians. Season 2 of Cooper’s Treasure, a documentary television series released and distributed by Discovery Channel, follows Darrell Miklos and his crew around The Bahamas searching for shipwrecks. Unfortunately, treasure hunting is still a common problem in The Bahamas; piracy is not relegated to the past. Illegal looting and damage constitute a serious threat to the country’s underwater cultural heritage. Accordingly, this study contributes to this discussion by conducting a critical analysis of two television docu-series, Treasure Quest and Cooper’s Treasure and media discussions surrounding nautical archaeology and treasure hunting in The Bahamas. The study finds that media discussions in The Bahamas incorrectly interpret treasure hunting to be part of nautical archaeology. Furthermore, there is a widespread feeling in The Bahamas that treasure hunting is necessary.

  • Wrecked Emigrant Ships in The Bahamas: The Wreck of the Barque William and

    • Authors: Jim Lawlor
      Pages: 75 - 86
      Abstract: The Bahamian archipelago is strategically located between the Atlantic and the Caribbean Sea. However, the hidden reefs and shoals, the changing sandbanks, and the unpredictable winds and currents, especially in the hurricane months, all conspired to make Bahamian waters the terror of navigators and the delight of wreckers during the age of sail. This article explores the wrecks of four emigrant ships in The Bahamas in the early 1850s. The European passengers were leaving poverty-stricken Europe to pursue the ‘American Dream’ but did not reach their destination without enduring the combined perils of weather and the hazards of Bahamian waters. Fortunately, they were rescued by humane Bahamian wreckers and assisted by inhabitants of Nassau and Governor Gregory, who organized their onward journey. In particular, the wreck of the William and Mary exposes the greed and lack of care that ship owners and captains showed in attempting to carry hapless passengers from Europe to the United States of America.

  • Introduction: Moving Forward Post-Hurricane Dorian: The Necessity for
           Public, Private, and Individual Collaboration in the Face of Climate

    • Authors: Ian A. Bethell-Bennett, Saskia M. Fürst
      Pages: 87 - 92
      Abstract: As the articles in this special section of the International Journal of Bahamian Studies focusing on the impacts of Hurricane Dorian note, The Government of The Bahamas can no longer be so lax in its preparation strategies for managing natural disasters, and private companies, non-governmental organizations, and individuals must be included in both the preparation and recovery from such disasters, at national and international levels. Furthermore, support structures should be in place for those very volunteers and individuals who are directly and indirectly affected to alleviate the emotional and psychological trauma surviving and supporting survivors of such events can cause. The Bahamas, like other Small Island Developing States (SIDS), is especially vulnerable to the effects of climate change; therefore, understanding and learning from the lack of preparedness and the ongoing responses to the impacts of Hurricane Dorian will prove crucial for better preparation for future disasters due to global warming.

  • Emergency Response to Hurricane Dorian: Emergent Volunteer Groups and
           Public-Private Partnerships

    • Authors: Adelle Thomas, Cathleen LeGrand, Susan H. Larson
      Pages: 93 - 104
      Abstract: The emergency response efforts in the immediate days and weeks following Hurricane Dorian provide valuable guidance for effective preparation for and response to future extreme events. We assess the experiences and lessons learnt from an emergent volunteer group that provided emergency response in the first fifteen days following the landfall of Hurricane Dorian. Drawing from accounts of first responders that convened at the Odyssey Aviation airport in New Providence, the paper highlights the activities, outcomes, and enabling factors of the ad hoc group that supported a wide range of emergency response efforts. The group developed and managed an evacuation centre that processed over 6,000 evacuees from Abaco and Grand Bahama; collaborated to deliver food, shelter and medical attention for evacuees; and found housing for displaced persons. They organized the marine response to the storm; coordinated international organizations; and facilitated landing first responders and initial medical teams into Abaco. They also provided coordination support for the Government of The Bahamas. We highlight the need to include public-private partnerships in national disaster management systems to significantly strengthen national capacities to address the rising risks of disasters.

  • The Responsibility of Community Sustainability from the Frontlines of
           Climate Change

    • Authors: Nastassia Pratt
      Pages: 105 - 116
      Abstract: Bahamian communities are vulnerably positioned on the frontlines of climate change due to global warming. Small Island Developing States (SIDS) in the Global South, including The Bahamas, have been identified as especially vulnerable to the impacts of climate change due to their unique characteristics. There is now a pressing need for sustainable community development that involves a cross-disciplinary, climate change adaptation approach that promotes resilience strengthening. This type of planning strategy was needed in the preparation and implementation of emergency shelters before the passing of Hurricane Dorian and in the ongoing rebuilding efforts of communities post-Dorian. Further, the way in which key stakeholders engage with these activities has implications on The Bahamas’ capacity for climate change resilience. This paper will identify gaps in adaptation processes within Dorian-hit redevelopment and the national system of sheltering and evacuation. It goes on to argue the need for social equity in planning for the protection of vulnerable communities, inclusive of informal settlements like those destroyed by Hurricane Dorian in North Abaco. Lastly, this paper will make recommendations toward Bahamian climate change resilience.

  • Dorian Unmaking Space: Policy, Place and Dislocation

    • Authors: Ian A. Bethell-Bennett
      Pages: 117 - 130
      Abstract: Within an autoethnographic approach, this paper employs concepts such as spatial and climate (in)justice and structural and slow violence to explore disaster capitalism that results from a neoliberal state and its desire to dispose of people it deems as being less worthy. Focusing on the impacts of Hurricane Dorian on Abaco and the fallout, this work builds on other disasters in the region and attempts to draw parallels between the Bahamian government’s response to Hurricane Dorian and the similarity this response shares with other regional reactions to natural disasters.

  • A Living Wage for The Bahamas: Estimates, Potentials, and Problems

    • Authors: Lesvie Archer, Bridget Sophia Hogg, Vijaya Perumal, Olivia Saunders, Brittney Johnson
      Pages: 131 - 146
      Abstract: This report describes how living wage estimates were calculated for New Providence and Grand Bahama. This report uses primary and secondary sources and is inspired by the Anker methodology. We calculated that $2625 and $3550 were needed each month as the gross living wage for a full-time worker who must sustain a family of four in New Providence and Grand Bahama, respectively. We estimated the net living wage to be $2500 per month for New Providence and $3400 for Grand Bahama. Our estimates are almost 200% higher than the minimum wage and nearly 130% higher than the poverty line for New Providence; for Grand Bahama, they are almost 300% higher than the minimum wage and 160% higher than the poverty line. The study should inform national discussions on public policy matters related to reducing the country’s cost of living, improving its income equity, and pursuing economic justice for all.

  • Challenges and Support for Pre-service Teachers’ Virtual Teaching and
           Practicums: Implications for Bahamian Educational Systems

      Pages: 147 - 164
      Abstract: Teacher education programmes, nationally and internationally, are unique both at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Specifically, in the Bahamian educational system, they are designed to produce certified K-12 teachers who demonstrate academic and professional excellence in a variety of subject areas. These programmes incorporate a theoretical component and a culminating practical experience that requires pre-service teachers to be evaluated on the quality of their teaching. Normally the culminating experience has been completed in the traditional face-to-face setting. However, the onset of COVID-19 resulted in an immediate imposition of a virtual teaching practicum. This integrated literature review explores the challenges pre-service teachers faced and the support systems they needed during a virtual teaching practicum and addresses implications for practice in a Bahamian setting.

      Abstract: Communicating research is an important step in the research process. It can be a means of getting informed feedback on a research project in progress, a means of sharing results in the final stage of a research project, or a step in preparing a research study for publication.
