I just want to signal this very interesting publication, recently reviewed by Valérie Loichot (Emory University) on Southern Spaces. It is an ecocritical perspective on the ‘parahuman’, liminal and transversal forms of subjectivity, personhood and agency historically developed in the slave plantation environment. It promises to be a very interesting piece of scholarship for my research on Caribbean biopolitics.
Of his bones are coral made;
Those are pearls that were his eyes;
Nothing of him that doth fade
But doth suffer a sea-change
Into something rich and strange.
