Topics course. This course examines the political, social, and economic role of women in African history, while paying particular attention to the ways in which a wide variety of women - rural and urban, Christian and Muslim, married and unmarried, and literate and non-literate - engaged, understood, and negotiated the changing political and social landscapes associated with life under colonial rule. Key issues addressed in the course include marriage and respectability, colonial domesticity regimes, and women and religion. Additionally, students will interrogate the diversity of methodological techniques scholars have employed in their attempts to write African women's history.
