Nicole Charles

Nicole Charles is an Assistant Professor of Feminist Studies in Culture and Media in the Women and Gender Studies Program in the Department of Historical Studies. Her research engages cultural studies, science and technology studies, and transnational and women of colour feminisms to deconstruct the entwined politics of biomedicine, care, gender, race and colonialism in the Anglophone Caribbean.

Her forthcoming book manuscript, Suspicion: Vaccines, Biotechnologies and the Affective Politics of Protection in Barbados examines the (post)colonial, transnational and affective politics behind the promotion and refusal of the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine in Barbados.
