Sovereign intimacies: Scaling sexual politics in Martinique by Vanessa Agard-Jones( Book )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
This dissertation is an ethnography of sexual politics in Martinique, one of France's territories in the Caribbean. It investigates how ordinary experiences with gender and sexuality frame analyses of power and ideas about self-determination in post-slavery societies. Based upon twenty months of field and archival research, the study examines conflicts over sex education, LGBT rights, and pesticide contamination to highlight how these debates are key sites for accessing non-elite theorizations about what it means to be "free." The dissertation foregrounds Martinique's status as an incorporated French territory to highlight how islanders' simultaneous identifications with the Americas, with the Caribbean, and with Europe generate political subjectivities that cross geographic and symbolic scales. Decoupling political sovereignty from ideas about freedom, it details how Martinican narratives about matters of the body articulate with debates about autonomy in the Caribbean and with critiques of the racialized politics of citizenship in France. The project is imbricated in ongoing debates about the ontological status of and social meanings ascribed to blackness in postcolonial France, and addresses the dynamic ways that ideas about "local values" and "appropriate sexuality" translate ethical and political concerns in its territories overseas. It builds upon scalar theories to propose a method for thinking about Martinican political subjectivities that moves from intimate experiences within bodies, to communities, states, and regions, and argues that intimate socialities and gendered subjectivities offer a fresh standpoint from which we might understand ordinary islanders' investments in transnational debates about sovereignty
