This essay stages a meeting among the authors of the three reflections on Pedagogies of Crossings. Using danger and desire as the tropes of entry, it returns to Pedagogies by way of wrestling with their most salient preoccupations: the need for a visible pedagogy of the erotic; the importance of bringing sex to our engagement of the erotic and to our experience of the Sacred; and the urgency of addressing the analytic and political fissures between Caribbean feminists at home and those abroad. It ends by underscoring the need for a collective politics that re-imagines our deep yearnings to live sovereign lives.
