Critical Subjectivities & Sites of Resistance in Caribbean Studies

speakers: 

Dr. Nicole Roberts, Beatrice Bain Research Group
Professor Nadia Ellis, English

According to Professor Nadia Ellis, English, attitudes about homosexuality in Caribbean cultures are, in a word, complicated. On the one hand, there is widespread intolerance as evidenced by homophobic dancehall music lyrics, acts of violence against homosexuals, and "anti-buggery" laws. On the other hand, there are thriving—albeit covertly hidden—pockets of queer communities to be found throughout the Carribean, each possessed of their own unique markers and expressions of gay identity.
