Homing modern freedoms: Creolization and the politics of making place

Journal Article (Journal Article)

'Creolization', as subject and problematic, seems trapped in complex processes of cultural politics within and outside the 'Caribbean', even as it continues to figure significantly in the histories of globalization, nationalization and regionalization. In this article, we examine the subject of 'creolization' that has been so discursively implicated in the time, space and power marked experiences and practices of 'Caribbean subjects', in order to rethink it, and offer some analytical insights into the nature of the historical processes of making 'modern' subjects, place, and relatedly, homing modern freedoms. © The Author(s) 2009.
