Affect and Creolisation

fr104

The ‘Affect and Creolisation’ Feminist Review Special Issue addresses questions concerning the legacy of plantation culture, focusing on its shaping of a gendered creolisation and affect. The essays consider ways in which creole textualisation allows for an enlarged discussion of the Creole transnational, including an interrogation of gendered bodily affectivity and agency. The issue raises questions about women’s bodies: are Creole women’s bodies haunted by memories and legacies of a traumatic history of Atlantic slavery and what meanings does this past hold for the present? In their interrogation of the gendered legacy of the plantation, this collection of essays invigorates feminist theorising of the affective.
