Gender and Slavery
Groundbreaking in its scope, the Gender and Slavery series explores the gendered experience of enslavement in the New World, covering both the Americas and the West Indies. The series editors seek new scholarship on slavery from diverse fields including but not limited to women’s and gender studies, manhood and masculinity studies, African American and Atlantic World history, American studies, and literature, with close attention paid to analytic themes that engage larger fields: labor, expressive culture, intimate relations, resistance, reproduction, and production.
Extending beyond binaries of house/field or urban/rural, this transnational series encompasses the seventeenth through nineteenth centuries and focuses primarily on the English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, and Dutch-speaking diaspora. We encourage submissions that draw on comparative aspects of this history, as well as micro- and macro-studies of gender and slavery.
