For our first meeting, we will be discussing Anne Eller’s article “Skirts Rolled Up: The Gendered Terrain of Politics in Nineteenth-Century Port-au-Prince” and the second chapter of Hermia Eddris Morton Anthony’s thesis titled “Literature Review: Conventional Sources and Interpretations.” The second text is an incredible overview of historiography about women and resistance in the British Caribbean.

In addition to dedicating time to discuss both texts (and eat delicious food), we will also dedicate some time to discuss ideas and listen to suggestions. We want this space to be as helpful as possible, so we want to hear about the texts you wish to discuss, the speakers you would like us to invite, and how you would like us to organize our meetings. We already have some ideas, but we want to know what you think!
