Seeking Panelists - Commodification of Wild/Natural Resources in (post)Colonial Space (ASEH 2015)

We are seeking a co-panelist (or two) who is (are) interested in questions of the commodification of natural or wild resources. My colleague, Julie Weiskopf, Univ. of Wisconsin-La Crosse, works in western Tanzania, her paper will address post-independence, socialist contexts of conservation as a form of self preservation at the Moyowosi Game Reserve from 1959-1978. The Game Reserve exposes the tensions between state and community understanding of conservation and competing visions of wild spaces.

Query: Sierra Leone Women's Protest Movement 1961-2014

 
I am in search of materials (books and articles; including newspapers) dealing with the women's protest movements in post-independent Sierra Leone. 
 
Kindly help me to identify these reading materials, as I am finding it very difficult to access materials on this largely under-researched area.
 
Moreover, I will also appreciate it if you can help me with the names (and contact details) of women who were actively involved in the protest movements in Sierra Leone between 1961 and 1991.

Research in Philadelphia

I'm looking for a type of financial information on 19th century Philadelphia artists that I haven't looked for in the past.  Can anyone direct me to useful research sources?

 

I thought that wills might be available at the Pennsylvania Historical Society.  And census records, which often indicate a general level of income, might be useful.  Would those be on microfilm at the National Archives branch in Philadelphia?

 

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
