Heritage, Commodities and Circulation, Black Atlantic Landscapes, Identity and Subjectivity, Caribbean Futures
Alyssa A.L. James is a 2020 SSHRC Doctoral Fellow whose research examines the consequences of recasting colonial history for Caribbean subjectivities and futures. She interrogates the discourses and practices that transform commodities into heritage - and history into commodity - as it unfolds through Martinique’s nascent coffee revival project.
