The Captive Maternal


This book represents the first comprehensive exploration of ’the Captive Maternal’, synthesising over a decade of thought-provoking content and incisive analyses. Expanding on her influential 2016 essay ‘The Womb of Western Theory’, Professor Joy James delivers a revolutionary contribution to Black feminist/masculinist studies, radicalism, political philosophy, and the fabric of US national and international politics. The book delves into the intricate lives of those ‘feminised’ into caretaking and consumption.
It uncovers the histories, struggles and resolute strengths of Captive Maternals be they self-identified females, males, trans individuals or those who transcend gender a group integral to the tapestry of resistance against oppression. From domestic upheavals through cultural revolutions to families impacted by police violence in the Americas, Professor James excavates hidden layers beneath seemingly ordinary narratives, revealing the profound impact of the Captive Maternal on every facet of existence. It intersects with renowned figures such as Octavia Butler, Toni Morrison, and the indomitable Black Panther movement.
As the past converges with the present to shape the future, The Captive Maternal navigates the intellectual terrain where Black/feminist/socialist studies converge to infuse political theory and freedom movements, reshaping our understanding of power dynamics, resilience, and the enduring struggles for liberation and justice.
