Caribbean Scottish Relations Carla Sassi
A remapping of colonial history focused on the often paradoxical complexity of relations determined by imperial power. It accounts for the "difference" that separates Scotland from the Caribbean — what sets “Blackness” apart from “Scottishness”, but it also brings these two geopolitical areas and ethnic groups together. The inquiry results in a multi-vocal discourse that deconstructs national narratives, unveils colonial inscriptions, and releases the creolised images and words that demand full citizenship in the representation of the Circum-Atlantic.
