Abstract:This volume is based on selected papers presented at the Annual Africa History Conference held at the University of Texas in Austin, USA between March 26 and 28 in 2010. The contributions examine the lives and experiences of African women both within and outside the continent, in the public sphere and in the private domestic sphere, from a variety of disciplinary perspectives. The contributors of the book critically engage with previous scholarship on the topic to examine issues of motherhood, human trafficking, historical imagination, religion and sexuality (part one); feminism, media, and literature (part two); education, political participation, and entrepreneurship among women (part three). Most chapters are Nigeria-focused, but there are also contributions dealing with Benin, Kenya, Brazil, and South Africa. [ASC Leiden abstract]
