Through ethnographically situating the discourse and practice of human rights, this presentation highlights Jamaican activism of gay rights, an issue which has commanded much national and international attention. Dr. Sterling argues particularly for a postcolonial analysis in the effort to appreciate the dimensions and possibilities of gay rights and human rights activism, while also fully acknowledging the ways in which the postcolonial legacy is today articulated in relation to the neoliberal dilemmas currently facing the nation.
