Anthropologist Yarimar Bonilla responds to Greg Beckett and Christienna D. Fryar's engagements with her Non-Sovereign Futures: French Caribbean Politics in the Wake of Disenchantment (2015). In responding to the questions raised, Bonilla lays out the conceptual and methodological orientations of the work as well as its analytical targets. The essay situates Non-Sovereign Futures within a larger problem-space of political disenchantment, argues for the need to deprovincialize the Caribbean, and brings into question perduring scholarly entanglements with the traditions of Western political thought.
