Stoddard uses the Anglophone Caribbean and Ireland to examine the complex inflections of women and race as articulated in-between the colonial discursive and material formations of the eighteenth century and those of the (post)colonial twentieth century, as structured by the defined spaces of the colonizers´ estates.

´In Positioning Gender and Race in (Post)colonial Plantation Space, Eve Stoddard makes a significant contribution to existing scholarship by using real and imaginary landscapes to reflect on the sociocultural legacy of colonization. She delves into psychomythographies of place that perpetuate the trauma of colonial domination, comparing Ireland´s Big Houses to the plantations of the West Indies. This book will be useful to scholars and students in Irish Studies, Caribbean Studies, postcolonial studies, geography, women´s literature, and literature of the African diaspora." - Jennifer Nesbitt, Associate Professor of English, Penn State York
