This book marks an important new intervention into a vibrant area of scholarship, creating a dialogue between the histories of imperialism and of women and gender. By engaging critically with both traditional British imperial history and colonial discourse analysis, the essays demonstrate how feminist historians can play a central role in creating new histories of British imperialism. Chronologically, the focus is on the late eighteenth to early twentieth centuries, while geographically the essays range from the Caribbean to Australia and span India, Africa, Ireland and Britain itself. Topics explored include the question of female agency in imperial contexts, the relationships between feminism and nationalism, and questions of sexuality, masculinity and imperial power.

The Kaleidoscope Of Gender by Joan Z. Spade

This integrated, comprehensive text/reader is designed to present an accessible, timely, and stimulating introduction to the sociology of gender. It can be used as a text by itself or as a supplement to other materials in courses in Sociology of Gender and Introduction to Women’s Studies. Articles have been selected (1) to creatively and clearly explicate what gender is and is not, and what it means to say that gender is socially constructed; (2) to untangle and clarify the intricate ways in which gender is embedded in and defined by other systems of difference and inequality such as race, social class, sexualities, and age; (3) to illustrate the complex variations and dynamics of gender across cultures. By organizing the book around a metaphor-the kaleidoscope--the articles are integrated throughout the text and tied together by text/introductions to each chapter. This makes the book more than a collection of articles; each article fits into the metaphor and its three themes: prisms, patterns, and possibilities.

During the past three decades, feminist scholars have successfully demonstrated the ubiq uity and omnirelevance of gender as a sociocultural construction in virtually all human collectivities, past and present. Intrapsychic, interactional, and collective social processes are gendered, as are micro, meso, and macro social structures. Gender shapes, and is shaped, in all arenas of social life, from the most mundane practices of everyday life to those of the most powerful corporate actors. Contemporary understandings of gender emanate from a large community of primarily feminist scholars that spans the gamut of learned disciplines and also includes non-academic activist thinkers. However, while in corporating some cross-disciplinary material, this volume focuses specifically on socio logical theories and research concerning gender, which are discussed across the full array of social processes, structures, and institutions. As editor, I have explicitly tried to shape the contributions to this volume along several lines that reflect my long-standing views about sociology in general, and gender sociology in particular. First, I asked authors to include cross-national and historical material as much as possible. This request reflects my belief that understanding and evaluating the here-and-now and working realistically for a better future can only be accomplished from a comparative perspective. Too often, American sociology has been both tempero- and ethnocentric. Second, I have asked authors to be sensitive to within-gender differences along class, racial/ethnic, sexual preference, and age cohort lines.
