Critical Conditions: Illness and Disability in Francophone African and Caribbean Women's Writing theorizes the unique interplay between history, science, the body, identity and writing that occurs in African and Caribbean Francophone women's writing from 1968-2003. These writings, it argues, disclose figures of illness and disability in the postcolonial context that challenge standard paradigms of women's bodily and psychic health established by Western colonial medicine and racial biology such as those that idealize cure, demand normativity, and assign tragedy to the "unhealthy."
