In July 2015, BCRW Associate Director Tami Navarro traveled to the University of the West Indies (UWI), Cave Hill as part of BCRW’s Transnational Feminisms Initiative in partnership with colleagues in the Institute for Gender and Development Studies (IGDS) at the Cave Hill campus. While in Barbados, Dr. Navarro taught a module in the IGDS summer course, Caribbean Institute in Gender and Development (CIGAD). Dr. Navarro’s session, “Women and Global Markets: A View from the Caribbean,” provided students with an overview of development paradigms in the Caribbean and their gendered implications. During her visit, Dr. Navarro also delivered a lecture entitled Virgin Capital, which drew from her anthropological research in the US Virgin Islands.
