DescriptionWomen, Gender, and Diasporic Lives is an interdisciplinary collection on women and gender in Greek diaspora communities. Using a variety of methodologies, including archival research, ethnography, participant observation, and quantitative analysis, the eleven contributors present in-depth and highly nuanced feminist analyses of diverse aspects of Greek diasporic experiences. The volume's geographical scope spans four continents (North America, Europe, Australia, Africa) and seven countries (USA, Canada, Germany, Greece, Australia, Egypt, Ethiopia), and touches on both contemporary and historical diasporic experiences. Using the broad themes of women's labor, community activity, and identity as their organizing concept, the contributors intersect these issues with the concerns of ethnicity, class, generation,and masculinity. The country-specific case studies reveal women's intentionality and agency in labor, in building community institutions, and in negotiating and re-defining their identities. The broac range of contributor backgrounds make this book a valuable resource for anyone interested in gender, diaspora, labor, or modern Greek studies.
