Taking place during Women’s History Month, Women’s Paths third seminar focuses on herstory: writing as a form of resistance for Caribbean women of colour. Using performance, activist narratives and scholarly research, the seminar will explore the ways that Caribbean feminisms (located both in the archipelago and its diaspora) enact and imagine a decolonised resistance to the legacy of imperialism.
