about

This ground-breaking study of the Caribbean's iconography traces the history of visual representations of the region, as perceived by outsider and insider alike, over the last five hundred years. It circles the Caribbean while focusing on Haiti, Jamaica, Trinidad, and Barbados, tracing the parameters drawn on each society by the colonial encounter and drawing from the methodologies and material of history, literature, art, gender, and cultural studies.  
Patricia Mohammed is Professor of Gender and Cultural Studies at the University of the West Indies, St Augustine.
