From Ruffles to Rifles: The Multifaceted Modern Woman as Imagined by British Settlers in Interwar Colonial Kenya

MA Thesis, 2013

My research has a longstanding emphasis on ways personal life and identities interact with societal power structures. 

My MA Thesis research centered ideologies of womanhood in colonial Kenya. Specifically, I used memoirs, novels, newspapers, fashion spreads, and household guides to examine the discourses of femininity among British women living in interwar Kenya.
