Gender, Sex, and Empire
The intersection of gender, sexuality, and race is a new area of exploration within the study of European imperialism. In this essay the author discusses such roles as white women’s implicit task of regulating the sexual boundaries between the ruling classes and the indigenous populations during the 18th and 19th centuries. The focus of this exploration is primarily on British Africa and India, with other areas briefly touched upon.
