Interconnections : Gender and Race in American History
Edited by Carol Faulkner and Alison M. Parker [College at Brockport faculty member].
The chapters in this volume, collected for a conference held at the University of Rochester, see the interconnections between gender and race as fundamental to American identity and central to American history. This collection builds on decades of interdisciplinary scholarship by African American women and gender historians and feminist scholars, attempting to bridge the gap between well-developed theories of race, gender, and power andthe practice of historical research. It reveals the interdependent construction of racial and gender identity in individuals' lived experiences in specific historical contexts, such as westward expansion, civil rights movements, or economic depression as well as national and transnational debates over marriage, citizenship and sexual mores. All of these essays consider multiple aspects of identity, including sexuality, class, religion, and nationality, among others, but the volume emphasizes gender and race--the focus of our new book series--as principal bases of identity and locations of power and oppression in American history.
