Abstract:Aware of the multiplicity and complexity of the colonial situations experienced by the African continent, the ambition of this special issue of 'Stichproben' is to explore the multiple intersections between gender and colonialisms by underlining the limits of dualist approaches to such questions. Its main objective is to explore the double sense of 'subject': the active construction of subjectivity as well as being subjected to processes of domination, in order to investigate how the African subjects fluctuate(d) between these positions. Contributions: Introduction: shifting gendered and colonial spaces in Africa (Natalya Vince, Marie Rodet, Odile Goerg); Deadlier than the male? Women and the death penalty in colonial Kenya and Nyasaland, c. 1920-57 (Stacey Hynd); On colonial laws and the treatment of young female delinquents in Senegal: the case of Léonie Guèye (Dior Konate); A miscarriage of revolution: Cameroonian women and nationalism (Meredith Terretta); The colonial 'emancipation' of Algerian women: the marriage law of 1959 and the failure of legislation on women's rights in the post-independence era (Neil MacMaster); Fracturing binarisms to create a space of 'jouissance': Marie Cardinal's 'Au pays de mes racines' (Laura Dennis-Bay).
