Gender and Colonialism Bibliography


From Eileen J. Findlay efindla@american.edu 22 Oct 1997

I am putting together an advanced undergraduate seminar on the History of Gender and Colonialism for Spring '98. The goal is to push the students to grapple with differences in theoretical and methodological approaches. My specialty is Latin America, so I'd appreciate any suggestions for good--classic or new "cutting-edge"--work on other colonized regions. Thanks.
