Re: Curriculum Development

Hi Joseph, I'll throw out a shameless plug for the Queer Newark Oral History Project (which I co-direct at Rutgers-Newark) as one potentially useful resource here, which speaks to the great new law and also offers a semi-local NJ angle. Our website is here:

And we archive the audio and transcripts of interviews here:

Re: Prostituition and American soldiers in India

I have two pieces on male French colonists and sex workers in colonial Vietnam that might be of use as secondary literature:

“(Colonial) Intimacy Issues: Using French Hanoi to Teach the Histories of Sex, Racial Hierarchies, and Geographies of Desire in the New Imperialism,” World History Connected October 2018:

“Sex and the Colonial City: Mapping Masculinity, Whiteness, and Desire in French Occupied Hanoi,” Journal of World History, Vol. 28, Nos. 3 & 4, 2018.

Re: Angolan tradition

If you have not already seen Rosa Melo's work, her publications would be essential for your project.
Rosa Melo, Homem é Homem, Mulher é Sapo: Género e Identidade entre os Handa no Sul de Angola (Lisbon, 2007).
Rosa Melo, «Nyaneka-Nkhumbi»: uma carapuça que não serve aos Handa, nem aos Nyaneka, nem aos Nkhumbi, available here:
Rosa Melo, "Mulher é Aquela que 'Comeu o Boi': O Efuko e a Construção do Género no Grupo Étnica Handa," Lusotopie 12, no. 1-2 (2005): 139-60,

Looking for resources

Hey all,

I am putting together a reading list on citizenship, nationalism, inequality, ethnic relations, and refugee-related issues. I need to include works by classical theorists (from Sociology). Any ideas? Who are the core classical and contemporary theorists in areas related to inequality and citizenship or inequality and nationalism? 



Does Anyone Have a 1950s Copy of "The Negro Motorist Green Book"?

As I have posted here before, I am curating an exhibit for the Cornelius Low House in Piscataway, "Mid-Century New Jersey," about the Garden State in the 1950s.

Does anyone have an original copy of "The Negro Motorist Green Book" from the 1950s? I want to include this in the exhibit but all I have been able to find are facsimiles of the 1954 edition.
