By Mimi Sheller
Attending to the hidden linkages between intimate nation-states and the general public sphere, Sheller explores particular struggles for freedom, together with women's political activism in Jamaica; the position of discourses of "manhood" within the making of loose topics, infantrymen, and voters; the fiercely ethnonationalist discourses that excluded South Asian and African indentured employees; the sexual politics of the low-bass beats and "bottoms up" strikes within the dancehall; and the fight for reproductive and LGBT rights and opposed to homophobia within the modern Caribbean. via her artistic use of archival assets and emphasis at the connections among intimacy, violence, and citizenship, Sheller enriches serious theories of embodied freedom, sexual citizenship, and erotic enterprise in all post-slavery societies.
