Boekpresentatie Gendered Empire (YWH39) – 11 december (online)


Invitation online book launch

The Yearbook of Women’s History kindly invites you to the book launch of:  

Gendered empire. Intersectional perspectives on Dutch post/colonial narratives

Zoom online – December 11, 2020 from 15:00 until 16:45

What do we see when we look at our collective Dutch colonial legacies from a gender perspective? How are these colonial legacies reflected in our museum collections and archives? Do herstories remain hidden and are there unknown biographies to unravel? Or do we reinterpret existing master narratives? Using an intersectional perspective, the volume Gendered empire. Intersectional perspectives on Dutch post/colonial narratives (Hilversum: Verloren Publishers, 2020) looks at the current growing Dutch interest in its own colonial legacy from a more critical and self-reflexive stance. The authors bring historical and current examples in the Dutch metropole and colonies together. Collectively they share archival silences, biographical counternarratives and a museum world grappling with its own colonial legacy, all the while wondering: what has gender got to do with it.
