Weaving the Second Skin: Protection Against Evil Among the Valongo Slaves in Nineteenth-century Rio de Janeiro
By Tania Andrade Lima Marcos André Torres de Souza Glaucia Malerba Sene
I am trying to gather some information about the representation of female warriors/heroes (from the Maghreb and Mashreq) in children's books written in French and/or English. In France, there are some new publishing houses which are dedicated to challenge gender stereotypes in children's literature. Is there something similar about the (mis)representation of Arab/Muslim women? My focus is on children's books.
I grew up with Shahrzad who managed to vainquish King Shahriar's rule of tyranny and bloodshed through her intellect.
I am looking to put together a panel that explores the intersections between sport and migration/settlement for the 40th Annual SSHA Meeting in Baltimore this November. My own paper will discuss the creation and contours of the inter-ethnic, working-class sport subculture that formed among European immigrants in postwar Toronto, Canada.
Please direct your abstracts and questions to Stephen Fielding at firstname.lastname@example.org before February 7, 2015.

Karen Kampwirth's edited volume, Gender and Populism in Latin America: Passionate Politics (Penn St. Press, 2010) might also be of interest to you.
I do not know if you may also be interested in the relationship between gender and the judiciary, but I am working on a book on the history about women in the prosecution in Brazil, to be published in Portuguese in April. There are very few studies on the presence of women in law and especially on women in the Public Attorney, noting that there is no parallel in other countries in the Americas (US, in particular) to the complexity of tasks and guarantees that the P. Attorney (Ministério Público) has in Brazil. If I can help, please, feel free to contact me.
