Carnival Is Woman

Philip W. Scher

University Press of Mississippi

This essay contextualizes the Canboulay riots and highlights the role that women played not just in the action itself, but also in the life of what is commonly referred to as the Jamette Carnival. This essay concludesthat we might re-imagine these activities, at least in part, as political protests rather than simply riots.
