Island Bodies: Transgressive Sexualities in the Caribbean Imagination

by Rosamond S. King

“Outstanding.”—David William Foster, author of São Paulo: Perspectives on the City and Cultural Production

New from UPF! Island Bodies explores sexual norms and expectations in Caribbean and diaspora literature, music, film, and popular culture to reveal how many individuals contest the traditional roles of their society’s binary gender systems. Rosamond King shows that even though the islands are different in many ways, there are striking similarities in how Caribbean cultures try to restrict sexuality and in how individuals explore and transgress those boundaries.
