About this book

This study explores two categories—empire and citizenship—that historians usually study separately. It does so with a unifying focus on racialization in the lives of outstanding women whose careers crossed national borders between 1880 and 1965. It puts an individual, intellectual, and female face on transnational phenomena.

PATRICIA SCHECHTER is a professor of History at Portland State University, USA.

Reviews

'An important book, one which challenges the standard geographical boundaries for U.S. women's history (and American history more broadly) and adds to our understanding of the complex ways in which women have engaged with U.S. imperialism.' - American Historical Review

'Exploring the Decolonial Imaginary is intellectually daring, deeply researched, and well executed. Schechter moves transnational history to a new level.' - Thomas Bender, professor of History, New York University

'Schechter has deftly rendered the historical spaces that these four women occupied and more importantly, demonstrated why they mattered. Due to this conscientious and artful construction of contexts, her work makes it indefensible for women such as these to be left out of future studies of diaspora, citizenship, and immigration across the Atlantic world.' - Claude Clegg, professor of History, Indiana University
