Confronting Power, Theorizing Gender
Interdisciplinary Perspectives in the Caribbean
- Published: August 2003
Confronting Power, Theorizing Gender is an anthology of Caribbean feminist scholarship which has several unique features. It exposes gender relations as regimes of power and consolidates and advances indigenous feminist theorizing. A particularly strong section of the collection deconstructs marginality and masculinity in the Caribbean. The major breakthrough is the recognition that this area of research includes both men and women as integral to a more adequate conceptualization of society, polity and economy. The temper of the times suggests that a significant watershed in gender studies has been reached.
