Gendering war talk by Miriam G Cooke( Book )

8 editions published between 1993 and 2014 in English and held by 564 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a century torn by violent civil uprisings, civilian bombings, and genocides, war has been an immediate experience for both soldiers and civilians, for both women and men. But has this reality changed our long-held images of the roles women and men play in war, or the emotions we attach to violence, or what we think war can accomplish? This provocative collection addresses such questions in exploring male and female experiences of war--from World War I, to Vietnam, to wars in Latin America and the Middle East--and how this experience has been articulated in literature, film and drama, his

To try her fortune in London : Australian women, colonialism, and modernity by Angela Woollacott( Book )

15 editions published in 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 341 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Between 1870 and 1940, tens of thousands of Australian women were drawn to London, their imperial metropolis and the center of the publishing, art, musical, theatrical, and educational worlds. Even more Australian women than men made the pilgrimage "home," seeking opportunities beyond those available to them in the Australian colonies or dominion. In tracing the experiences of these women, this volume reveals hitherto unexamined connections between whiteness, colonial status, gender, and modernity
Gender and empire by Angela Woollacott( Book )

7 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 315 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the first books to survey the role of sex and gender in the 'new imperial history', Gender and Empire covers the whole British Empire, demonstrating connections and comparisons between the white-settler colonies and the colonies of exploitation and rule. Through key topics and episodes across a broad range of British Empire history, Angela Woollacott examines how gender ideologies and practices affected women and men, and structured imperial politics and culture. Woollacott integrates twenty years of scholarship, providing fresh insights and interpretation using feminist and postcolonial approaches

11 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Transnational lives : biographies of global modernity, 1700-present( Book )

6 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The transnationalism of ordinary lives threatens the stability of national identity and unsettles the framework of national histories and biography. This book takes mobility, not nation, as its frame, and captures a rich array of lives, from the elite to the subaltern, that have crossed national, racial, and cartographic boundaries"--Provided by publisher
Race and the modern exotic : three 'Australian' women on global display by Angela Woollacott( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Race and the Modern Exotic focuses on three internationally successful 'Australian' performers from the first half of the 20th century who created newly-modern, racially-ambiguous, Australian femininities: Annette Kellerman, Rose Quong, and Merle Oberon. Annette Kellerman was a swimmer, diver, lecturer, and silent-film star. Through her international vaudeville performances and film roles, she played with the quasi-racial identity of a South Sea Islander. Rose Quong was an actor, lecturer, and writer who forged a career in London and New York. She built a career based on her own body through a careful appropriation of Orientalism. Quong's body was the signifier of her Chinese authenticity, the essentialist foundation for her constructed, diasporic, Chinese identity. Merle Oberon was one of the most celebrated film stars of the 1930s and 1940s, first in London and then Hollywood. The official story of Oberon's origins was that she was Tasmanian. However, this was a publicity story concocted at the beginning of her film career to mask her lower-class, Anglo-Indian birth. Despite anxious undercurrents about her exoticism, Australians were thrilled to claim a true Hollywood star as one of their own. Racial thinking was at the core of white Australian culture. Far from being oblivious to racial hierarchies and constructions, Australians engaged with them on an everyday basis. Around the world, 'Australian' stars represented a white-settler nation, a culture in which white privilege was entrenched during a period replete with legal forms of discrimination based on race. The complex meanings attached to three successful 'Australian' performers in this period of highly-articulated racism has thus become a popular cultural archive that can be investigated to learn more about contemporary connections between race, exoticism, and gender on the global stage and screen

4 editions published in 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Australian lives are intricately enmeshed with the world, bound by ties of allegiance and affinity, intellect and imagination. In Transnational Ties: Australian Lives in the World, an eclectic mix of scholars--historians, literary critics, and museologists--trace the flow of people that helped shape Australia's distinctive character and the flow of ideas that connected Australians to a global community of thought. It shows how biography, and the study of life stories, can contribute greatly to our understanding of such patterns of connection and explores how transnationalism can test biography's limits as an intellectual, professional and commercial practice."--Publisher's description

Mad on munitions : the lives of women munitions workers in World War I Britain by Angela Woollacott( )

5 editions published between 1988 and 1989 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Women munitions workers' standard of living improved markedly, as they earned on average three times their pre-war wages. Their housing in lodgings and hostels was controlled by the Ministry of Munitions; nurseries were provided for the care of their children; and first aid facilities were installed in factories. Women workers chose to spend their increased wages on, besides food and rent, clothes, heating fuel and entertainment. Factories organised social and recreational activities for their workers, while charities organised social clubs in order to provide women workers with an alternative to spending time on the streets. Although women were discharged from their munitions jobs at the end of the war, their wartime experience had made an impact on them
