Transnationalism & Migration
School Segregation, Anti-Racism, and the Making of Chinese Canadians
By drawing on Chinese sources and perspectives, this book offers an anti-racist history of the 1922-23 Chinese students’ strike in Victoria and Asian exclusion and racism in British Columbia.
Narratives of Contact and Arrival in Constituting Political Community
An exploration of the role of storytelling in community and nation building that disrupts the assumption in many works that indigenous and immigrant identities fall into two separate streams of analysis.
This book examines ways in which indigenous women participated in one of the most prominent institutions in colonial times--the Catholic Church--and what they made of their experience with convent life. It will appeal to scholars of literary criticism, women's studies, and colonial history, and to anyone interested in the ways that class, race, and gender intersected in the colonial world.
Transnationalizing Women's Movements
Case studies from North America, Latin America, and Southeast Asia explore the challenges and benefits of building transnational ties among feminists and women’s groups.
