This comparative feminist work starts with a substantial historical account of the different ways that freedom, race and gender were intertwined in Jamaica and Haiti after the end of slavery. Newly free men and women were rebound into a racialized class order with acceptable and unacceptable forms of masculinity and femininity— what the author calls embodied freedom. Mimi Sheller traces these histories of racialized and sexualized forms of freedom to the present, where, using tools from feminist geography, she examines the contemporary gendered spaces of citizenship, travel, and popular culture across the Caribbean.
