Synopsis

IIn a long overdue contribution to geography and social theory, Katherine McKittrick offers a new and powerful interpretation of black women\u2019s geographic thought. In Canada, the Caribbean, and the United States, black women inhabit diasporic locations marked by the legacy of violence and slavery. Analyzing diverse literatures and material geographies, McKittrick reveals how human geographies are a result of racialized connections, and how spaces that are fraught with limitation are underacknowledged but meaningful sites of political opposition. Demonic Grounds moves between past and present, archives and fiction, theory and everyday, to focus on places negotiated by black women during and after the transatlantic slave trade. Specifically, the author addresses the geographic implications of slave auction blocks, Harriet Jacobs\u2019s attic, black Canada and New France, as well as the conceptual spaces of feminism and Sylvia Wynter\u2019s philosophies. Central to McKittrick\u2019s argument are the ways in which black women are not passive recipients of their surroundings and how a sense of place relates to the struggle against domination. Ultimately, McKittrick argues, these complex black geographies are alterable and may provide the opportunity for social and cultural change. Katherine McKittrick is assistant professor of women\u2019s studies at Queen\u2019s University.
