Call for Papers Conference “Gender, household labour relations and (post)colonialism, 1800-present”

Date: 25-27 July 2016

Venue: Universitas Gajah Mada, Yogyakarta, Indonesia

In recent decades, postcolonial studies have increasingly looked at the role of gender in colonial relations. Inspiring work by scholars such as Catherine Hall, Phillipa Levine, Anne McClintock, and Ann Stoler, has tremendously deepened our knowledge on how gender relations were constituted, and how in turn they shaped colonial relations around the world. While work and household labour relations have surfaced in these studies, they have not been the focus of attention.

Mt. Kearsarge Indian Museum (in New Hampshire) World War I Oral History Project

As part of commemorating United State’s involvement in World War I, I (through Mt. Kearsarge Indian Museum) will be conducting an oral history project.  This project will consist of interviewing, recording and preserving Native American family narratives about what life was like for their ancestors during World War I.  We will be focusing on both veteran’s stories and stories about the “home front.” This will allow us to capture the flavor of what World War I was like for indigenous families in New England.
