About Dr. Saunders
Patricia J. Saunders is Professor of English at the University of Miami, Coral Gables where she is the Co-Editor of Anthurium: A Caribbean Studies Journal. She is the author of Alien-Nation and Repatriation: Translating Identity in Anglophone Caribbean Literature (2007) and co-editor of Music. Memory. Resistance: Calypso and the Caribbean Literary Imagination (2007). Her second monograph, Buyers Beware: Epistemologies of Consumption in Caribbean Popular Culture (2022), examines how practices of consumption in the Caribbean is shifting in powerful, though unexpected ways that can overturn paradigms of power and privilege. Using what she calls “cultural insurgency” consumers in countries with smaller scale economies have been able to enjoy some of the privileges typically accorded to consumers from larger countries and economies. She explores a range of Caribbean popular cultural modes of expression including Jamaican dancehall music, Caribbean fashion (including practices of body modification), as well as the work of contemporary visual artists Ebony G. Patterson, Christopher Cozier, and Leasho Johnson. Each critical site asks us to consider the ways practices such as “fair trade,” consumer satisfaction, and even con-artistry, have taken on new, wonderfully perverse meaning in the global marketplace. Buyers Beware is published in the Critical Caribbean Studies Series with Rutgers University Press.
