Notes on a branding: Subject and object in “Brand Jamaica”

Issue: 

Devotion to “branding” has become a shibboleth for entrance into the twenty-first century’s iteration of consumerism and globalisation. Branding will not only fatten wallets, it will also provide a “meaningful life”. As with advertising, branding not only creates a subject, the consumer of the product, but also an object, the product itself. It also attempts to imbue these products with meaning. Branding, as Naomi Klein has famously argued, is about the imaginary, not the material.

Fathering the “Outside” Child: Differences and Shortfalls among Urban Jamaican Fathers

Issue: 

Father involvement is an important plank in the social and cognitive development of a child, and this is best facilitated by a common residence. Yet little is known about the interaction of Jamaican fathers with their young children who do not reside with them. This article, based on a survey of 252 urban fathers, shows that despite expressing a strong ideological commitment to fatherhood, almost half of the sample did not interact with these children on a weekly basis through reasoning, and encouragement with schoolwork.

Exploring Traffic and Exploitation on the Brazilian International Border in the Amazon1

Issue: 

In this article I present partial results of anthropological research
conducted between 2010 and 2015 in Tabatinga, a city located on the triple
border of Brazil with Colombia and Peru in the Amazon. I seek to
understand how human trafficking discourses arrived, circulated and were
produced in the region during this time period. I focus on the multiple
relationships between local/transborder social, sexual and political
dynamics, and their intimate relation-ship with “sexual exploitation”

Trafficking Discourses of Dominican Women in Puerto Rico

Issue: 

We analyze the expansion of the anti-trafficking discourse in Puerto Rico
and its application to Dominican immigrants. Based on interviews with
social service providers, we argue that Dominican women are invisible in
current discourses of human trafficking for several reasons: their
racialization in a xenophobic context, their intimate labour trajectory, and
the national and international frameworks for understanding human
trafficking that exclude them from the category of “trafficking” victim and
