Centering Woman: Gender Discourses in Caribbean Slave Society

Front Cover
Ian Randle Publishers, 1999 - Slavery - 211 pages
The racial character of the anti-colonial discourse in the Caribbean had the effect of removing from centre stage the essential maleness of the targeted colonial historiography. This text focuses attention on women's location at the centre of a male-managed colonial world that simultaneously sought their otherness through objectified forms of discourse.
