(p.60) Chapter 3 Not Your Papa’s Wynter: Women of Color Contributions toward Decolonial Futures
Beyond the Doctrine of Man

This chapter focuses on two important contentions in the work of/on Wynter: First, there is a productive engagement with her understandings of feminism, gender, and patriarchy as they pertain to the overrepresentation of Man and in its relation to women of color and decolonial feminisms. Second, the authors examine her articulation of the studia humanitatis as a critical site for transformation and liberatory imagination. The chapter explores how Wynter’s critique of mainstream liberal feminism has provided a language for dismissing the work and political concerns articulated by women of color, while highlighting the deep resonances between Wynter’s project and the contributions made by women of color and decolonial feminists. In addition to a long history of taking back the “Word,” women of color have consistently sought to create new value systems and build relations anew beyond those established through colonization and slavery and beyond those that serve to bolster “Man.”

Keywords:   Caribbean philosophy, decolonial feminism, decolonial imaginary, decolonial poetics, feminist philosophy, patriarchy and masculinity, racialized gender, relationality, Women of color
