This paper explores the method developed in Professor Manji's forthcoming book which seeks to reread key texts in African social history for care. It explores three texts: Luise White’s The Comforts of Home; Jane Parpart’s Gender and Labour on the Zambian Copperbelt; and Tabitha Kanogo’s African Womanhood in Colonial Kenya. The paper will show that these works can be read as ‘supportive texts’ (Marks 2000: 106) for studying the history of reproductive labour.
Chair: Professor Carl Stychin, Director of the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies (IALS) and Professor of Law
