In this colloquium we will examine the complexities of race, gender, ethnicity, class, sexuality, and nationality within Caribbean contexts. Some of the themes we will analyze include conceptions of home and nation; the use, creation, and politics of language; intergenerational relationships between women; the rites and rights of girlhood and womanhood; and intersecting identities. We will specifically address how Caribbean women scholars/activists/artists critique racism, sexism, classism, heterosexism, colonialism, neocolonialism, and tourism within Caribbean sociocultural landscapes. In addition, we will analyze how Caribbean women/womyn frame and interrogate the politics of slavery, emancipation, freedom, resistance, rebellion, and independence during different historical eras. The required readings for this course reflect a variety of disciplinary and interdisciplinary methodologies, as well as a range of genres
