Abstract

This Special Issue of the Caribbean Review of Gender Studies (CRGS) includes articles that have been developed from a two-year project of collaboration between London South Bank University and the Institute for Gender and Development Studies Mona Campus Unit at The University of the West Indies. The project was led by Suzanne Scafe (LSBU) and Leith Dunn (IGDS Mona) and was funded by the UK’s Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) for twenty months from 2017. Its purpose was to establish a Research Network of scholars from the Caribbean, Canada and the UK. The title of the research network was African-Caribbean Women’s Mobility and Self-Fashioning in Post-Diaspora Contexts. The aim was to explore specific ways in which gender enables or necessitates African-Caribbean women’s mobility, and the unexpected
intimacies and experiences that emerge from these mobilities. The project developed a concept of “post-diaspora” in order to articulate the political, imaginative, affective and economic affiliations that challenge the proscriptions
of the nation-state. It asked how this concept can be used to reimagine new ways in which African-Caribbean women achieve agency through mobility intwenty-first century contexts of globalization, transnationalism and deterritorialization.
