Women on the Move: new book series (Manchester University Press)
Women on the Move is a transdisciplinary book series that focuses on unveiling the presence and multiplicity of experiences of women in migration processes. The series bridges the gap between historical and contemporary approaches, its objective being to publish books on women’s migration from a wide variety of perspectives, time frames and geographical outlooks, with a combination of quantitative and qualitative approaches.
The books published in the series seek to deconstruct the sexist stereotypes that have marked the history of migration by revealing both women migrants’ agency and resources, as well as their vulnerabilities and the challenges faced in past and present experiences of migration. The interplay between gender and migration at the core of the series invites authors to develop multifactorial perspectives of women’s migration and to disclose how gender shapes migration and how migration shapes gender.
