Connie Sutton’s impact on Caribbean studies was an important one, and she will be greatly missed. Her contributions came in many forms: research, writing, advocacy. Connie’s attention never wavered from her many decades of dedication to supporting scholars from the Caribbean region, both those just starting out and those who were established. This kind of mentorship was instrumental in contributing to transnational dialogues among North American and Caribbean scholars who held varying perspectives—dialogues that remain vibrant today. Connie’s sustained commitment to a materialist approach to Caribbean studies, notably with respect to labor and gender issues, also was important, particularly in political climates whose paradigms were shifting away from materialist approaches. Her interest in relations of power largely was concerned with social inequality and its lived experience among the disfranchised. But she also caught power’s nuances: for example, at one Caribbean conference we both attended a number of years ago, she participated in a genial but intense discussion with some of the other women scholars in the room about whether women’s military participation was a legitimate expression of gender equality. Connie’s comments were heartfelt and thoughtful. Through her various contributions to Caribbean studies, not least of which was her mentorship of scholars from the region, Connie Sutton’s work will be carried on by all those whom she supported and taught.
