"Gendering Migration" demonstrates the significance of studying migration through the lens of gender and ethnicity, and the contribution this perspective makes to migration histories. Through a consideration of the impact of migration on men and masculine identities as well as women and feminine identities, it extends our understanding of questions of gender and migration, focusing on the history of migration to Britain after the Second World War.Drawing on oral narratives, as well as documentary and archival research, "Gendering Migration" demonstrates the important role played by gender and ethnicity, both in ideas and images of migrants and in migrants' own experiences. A range of migrant and refugee groups who came to Britain in the twentieth century is considered: Caribbean, East-African Asian, German, Greek, Irish, Kurdish, Pakistani, Polish and Spanish. The fresh interpretations offered here make this an important new book for scholars and students of migration, ethnicity, gender and modern British history.
