BAH – Queen's History - 2013


Throughout my undergraduate degree at Queen's, I examined how women and their engagement with economic, political, and legal institutions evolved. I also studied Sub-Saharan Africa, with an emphasis on postcolonial history. Under the supervision of Dr. Marc Epprecht, I will look at how women's relationships to economic and legal institutions in West Africa have changed. Of particular interest to me is Judith Bennett's theory of patriarchal equilibrium and its various applications throughout Sub-Saharan African history. In broad terms, I am interested in human rights, as well as legal and economic history.
