Gender and North American Wests Bibliography


Query From Dawn Nickel danickel@gpu.srv.ualberta.ca 15 Sept 1998

Can anyone direct me to any new historiographical material (1997 or 1998) by historians writing on gender and the American/Canadian "Wests" during the 19th and early 20th century? I think I have everything up to 1997. Thanks.

Responses:

Carter, Sarah _Capturing Women: The Manipulation of Cultural Imagery in Canada's Prairie West Women_(McGill-Queens, 1997).

Knobloch, Frieda _The Culture of Wilderness_(UNC, 1997)

Leger-Anderson, Ann "Canadian Prairie Women's History-An Uncertain Enterprise," _Journal of the West, vol. 37, nr. 1 (Jan 1998), 47-59.

McManus Shelia (from York U) paper at the CHA Conference, June, 1998 "Making the 4pth Parallel: A Comparison of How Canada and the United States Managed Space, Race and Gender East of the Rockies, 1860-1900."

You may know of the following but I recommend,

an Alaska Anthrology: Interpreting the Past, Stephan W. Haycox and Mary Childers Mangusso (eds)UofWashington 1996. (As so often Alaska and Northern Canada is overlooked in histories of the US/Canada West)

The REsettlement of British Columbia: Essays on Colonialism and Geographical Change by Cole Harris (UBC Press 1997).

Capturing Women: The Manipulation of Cultural Imagery in Canada's Prairie West by Sarah Carter (McGill-Queens 1997)

Reading Beyond Words: Contexts for Native History, (eds) Jennifer Brown and Elizabeth Vibert (Broadview Press 1996).

also Ruth Sandwell's edited anthology on British Columbia rural history to be published (upcoming) by UBC press.

finally, Making Western Canada: essays on European Colonization and Settlement (eds) Catherine Cavanaugh and Jeremy Mouat (Garamond Press)

best of luck, Carol Williams (PhD candidate, Rutgers University)
