Projects

IGDS: NBU engages in a variety of projects aimed at deepening the Caribbean's understanding gender relations and promoting gender-responsive human relations. These projects often combine our research, outreach and teaching interests, allowing us to bring our expertise to bear in a range of areas. Our current focus ranges from gender in relation to education, the economy, the law and the family to sexual orientation, gender identity and human rights protections. We are also hoping to address sexual violence, leadership and the potential of youth as agents of change.

Quotes

" While remembering can enable us to historicize contemporary exclusions and recognize our own 'implicatedness,' it can also serve a more hopeful purpose. If we start with the gendered lives and survival strategies of women and men, their uneven circulation and mobility stitch the Caribbean together in ways that make it impossible to insist on seperability over connection. The fact that earlier migration patterns tend to be heavily male, should not distract us from thinking about where the women went and what they did. "
