This article serves as an introduction to a special issue on Caribbean in/securities. It begins by offering a threefold insight into the concept of in/securities: securities and insecurities are produced as spatially localised and historically contingent; the orthographic innovation of in/securities focuses on the relational production of security and insecurity; and creative practice is a means through which we can understand the many forms of agency required to negotiate between security and insecurity. The article goes on to illustrate this concept through a substantive analysis of Erna Brodber’s novel ‘Nothing’s Mat’ as a fractal narrative of gendered in/securities in the Caribbean.
