Notes:
286 p., Examines how texts by Diaz, Danticat, and Garcia render coloniality visible and how they offer strategies of plurality and border crossings as a means of liberation and epistemic decolonization, contesting absolute and universal positions of power. This book demonstrates that Caribbean and Western knowledge systems can be read in dialogue, which yields new strategies for solving complex problems such as intercultural conflicts and asymmetric power relations.
