Methodologies in Caribbean Research on Gender and Sexuality
MetadataShow full item record
This compendium is a breath of fresh air for those frustrated with dominant narratives that feed into the (neo)colonial, Eurocentric and hetero-patriarchal projects. The authors engage in counter readings of conventional archives and produce knowledge from unconventional sources. What better way to decolonize knowledge production than theorizing gender and sexuality “from the bottom up” and approaching history “from the inside out”? Largely, but not exclusively, the focus is the Anglophone Caribbean experience, but its basic rationale and principles certainly hold useful lessons for all marginalized communities “othered” by dominant Western perspectives.
