Homing: Race, Sexuality, & the Migratory Imagination

In this forthcoming hybrid collection of essays, myth, & poetry, Klonaris, a queer white Bahamian woman living in northern California, seeks to understand and critique the dynamics of white supremacy and its effects on the white imagination. By the weaving of myth -a re-telling of the Afro-Bahamian folktale “The Gaulin Wife”- through essays that move between ‘home’ in the Caribbean and ‘home’ in the US, she seeks to redefine her own whiteness and meditates on how this redefining, intersecting with the troubling of her sexuality, necessarily transfigures ‘home’.
