Kirsty Campbell participated in the Women's History Network annual conference this past week (2-3 September) and presented first findings from her PhD in the panel focused on boundaries and national identities. Entitled 'Broadcasting Boundaries: German women's construction of racialised and gendered hierarchies of difference in German South-West Africa,' she showed how intersectional approaches can and should inform our understandings of colonial histories. In her research presentation, Kirsty focussed on the way in which class, gender, and race all played a significant and entangled role in the construction of hierarchies of difference by German women in their memoirs about their time lived in Germans South-West Africa. Notably, she highlighted that women actively constructed these hierarchies in order to reinforce German women's role in colonial settler society whilst negotiating gender, class, and racial norms and expectations.
