Snaky Embraces: Travel Journalist Mary Pos Portrays Local Subjects in Suriname

Research output: Working paperAcademic

Abstract

In 1946 the Dutch journalist Mary Pos (1904-1987) travelled to Suriname and the Dutch Antilles (Bonaire, Saba, Sint Eustatius, St Maarten). Based on those trips she published various reports in Dutch magazines, some of which carried photographs she had made during her stay. For this working paper, presented at the Masterclass ‘Gendering Colonial Photography,’ I introduce, frame and discuss a small number of photographs.

The Masterclass, held on 5 July 2018 at Groningen University, was taught by Prof. dr. Patricia Mohammed of the University of the West Indies, and linked to the PhD defense of Dr. Margriet Fokken (RUG; supervisor Prof. dr. Mineke Bosch).
