Gender and Empire

Philippa Levine


Focusing the perspectives of gender scholarship on the study of empire, this is a volume of insights about the conduct of men as well as women. Bringing together disparate fields — politics, medicine, sexuality, childhood, religion, migration, and many more topics — this collection of essays demonstrates the richness of studying empire through the lens of gender. This is a more inclusive look at empire, which asks not only why the empire was dominated by men, but how that domination affected the conduct of imperial politics.

Keywords: gender scholarship, British Empire, sexuality, childhood, migration, imperial politics
