To Try Her Fortune in London: Australian Women, Colonialism, and Modernity Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Between 1870 and 1940, tens of thousands of Australian women were drawn to London, their imperial metropolis and the center of the publishing, art, musical, theatrical, and educational worlds. Even more Australian women than men made the pilgrimage "home," seeking opportunities beyond those available to them in the Australian colonies or dominion. In tracing the experiences of these women, this volume reveals hitherto unexamined connections between whiteness, colonial status, gender, and modernity.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [265]-281) and index.
