Abstract:My approach is guided by the notion that race and gender are neither essential nor natural categories. Rather, I see them as fluid, historically situated constructions that maintain systems of power and enact modes of resistance. This dissertation is based on twelve months of ethnographic research in Fort-de-France, the capital of Martinique.
