Imperial Intimacies: A Tale of Two Islands

“Where are you from?” Hazel Carby was continually asked as a girl, at a time when being Black and being British was understood to be an impossibility.

To answer that question properly, Carby found she needed to trace not just the family history of her Jamaican father and her Welsh mother, but to untangle knots the British Empire created across the Atlantic. Tracing the skeins of this knotted past through the method of “autohistory,” she charted the empire’s violent interweaving of lives and states, Jamaica and Britain, capital and bodies, public language and private feeling. In so doing, she found herself reckoning with what she could tell, what she could remember, and what she could bear to know.
