Abstract

As a heterosexual cis-gendered woman I am thinking about the complex positioning of African Caribbean women as Black academics in the British academy identities that are complexities of ethnicity, race, nation gender and sexuality and their articulations with other vectors of inequality such as class. I am writing from this space of tension in which I am as I write targeted by multiple discourses of difference as power indexing shifting lines of empowerment, disempowerment privilege and debasement is difficult, but also helpful. It is helpful because it enables me to engage in a theoretical, experiential and lived exploration of my own and other African-Caribbean women’s geographic, institutional and discursive mobilities between various spaces of identity, capture, liberation, silencing and audibility, and invisibility and hypervisibility.
