Decolonizing and Feminizing Freedom: A Caribbean Genealogy by Denise Noble

By Denise Noble

This e-book lines the robust discourses and embodied practices in which Black Caribbean ladies were imagined and produced as topics of British liberal rule and smooth freedom. It argues that during looking to break out liberalism’s gendered and racialised governmentalities, Black women’s daily self-making practices build decolonising and feminising epistemologies of freedom. those, in flip, many times interrogate the colonial logics of liberalism and Britishness. Genealogically dependent, the ebook starts with the narratives of freedom and identification offered by means of Black British Caribbean ladies. It then analyses severe moments of situation in British racial rule at domestic and in another country during which gender and Caribbean girls determine as issues of shock. Post-war Caribbean immigration to the united kingdom, decolonisation of the British Caribbean and the post-emancipation reconstruction of the British Caribbean loom huge in those concerns. In doing all of this, the writer unravels the colonial legacies that proceed to underwrite modern British multicultural anxieties. This thought-provoking paintings will entice scholars and students of social and cultural background, politics, feminism, race and postcoloniality.
