Dear fellow historians,
Hello. My name is Eri Kitada. I am a Doctoral Candidate at the Department of History, Rutgers University-New Brunswick.
I'm looking for works about women "uplifting" and "mothering" mixed-race children in the history of imperialism and colonialism -- women whom some scholars may frame as "maternal imperialists" or "imperial feminists."
