Gender and Migration

Gender and Migration

(p.156) 7 Gender and Migration
Gender and Empire

A. James Hammerton

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the gendered character of the migration process. The history of migration has in some respects been the ‘poor relation’ of imperial history generally, and more specifically of gender and Empire. Until about the last four decades, the study of migration shared the prevailing gender blindness in academic disciplines, and as gender emerged as a category of analysis, migration tended to be eclipsed by focus on issues such as gender and ethnic relations, employment, health, and reproduction.

Keywords:   migration, gender, Empire, ethnic relations, employment, health and reproduction
