Covering the period of the grand era of European and American imperialism -- from the 18th century until after the Second World War -- this volume examines the situation of women within the historical construction of nations, empires, and colonies. The contributors reveal the power relations of gender, class, race, and sexuality at the heart of the imperialisms, colonialisms, and nationalisms that have shaped our modern world. Topics include the (mis)representations of Native women by European colonizers, the violent displacement of women through imperialisms and nationalisms, and the relations between and among feminism, nationalism, imperialism, and colonialism. A number of the contributors examine historical processes to explain present political policies and cultural politics.
