Queer Narratives of the Caribbean Diaspora: Exploring Tactics combines the fields of queer and diasporic writing. It opens up an entire new domain where social and cultural meanings of sexuality within Caribbean space become objects of historical, colonial and literary investigations. By juxtaposing queerness, nation and belonging, this book unlocks both disciplines, making them permeable to other contexts and perspectives. Exploring the works of writers such as Shani Mootoo, Jamaica Kincaid and Lawrence Scott, this book investigates the Western notions of sexual identity and belongingness alongside postcolonial deployments of nation, diaspora and sexuality. The book adds to the abundant fields of queer and diaspora studies by intersecting them, in order not only to render their ability to work together but also to expose their weaknesses and highly contested underpinnings.
Dr Zoran Pecic is Lecturer in the Department of Culture and Identity at Roskilde University, Denmark. He has previously worked as an Associate Professor in the Department of English at Shantou University, China. He is currently conducting postdoctoral research on queer Chinese cinema.
