…one who is errant (who is no longer traveler, discoverer, or conqueror) strives to know the totality of the world yet already knows this cannot be accomplished—and knows precisely where the threatened beauty of the world resides…
Errantries is a book series published by Duke University Press and edited by Simone Browne, Deborah Cowen and Katherine McKittrick.
Errantries will explore geographies of race, highlighting interdisciplinary theoretical works that think through how space, place, and location are navigated, refashioned, challenged by marginalized communities, their inventive methodologies, and their creative works. Inspired by the writings of Édouard Glissant, the series explores how our collective and relational geographies are sites of difficult racial struggles. Errantries will draw attention to how space is not unwavering and static, but rather an articulation of bundled, dynamic, and interdisciplinary processes that illuminate strategies of critique, resistance, and anti-colonial praxes.
