About Me

Annette Joseph-Gabriel is a PhD candidate in the department of French and Italian at Vanderbilt University. Her dissertation, titled Women Subverting Empire: Gender and Anticolonial Politics in the Francophone World (1940-1975), examines francophone African and Antillean women’s anticolonial political activism as articulated through their literary production. As a Vanderbilt Humanities Arts Science and Technology Collaboratory (HASTAC) Scholar, Joseph-Gabriel is working on a digital mapping and visualization project that examines mobility as a key strategy of anticolonial resistance by tracing the travels of black women activists through West and Central Africa in the mid-twentieth century. Joseph-Gabriel is the managing editor of Palimpsest: A Journal on Women, Gender, and the Black International. She is the author of “From Tropiques to L’isolé soleil: Suzanne Césaire’s Politics and Poetics of Liberation” forthcoming in the International Journal of Francophone Studies.
