Verene Shepherd and Women’s History in the Caribbean

Today over at Activehistory.ca we posted the most recent episode of the History Slam podcast. In this episode, I talk with Professor Verene Shepherd of the University of the West Indies about women’s history in the Caribbean. We chat about how women’s history is taught in schools, efforts to get more women in leadership positions, the impact of the region’s nationalist movements on the women’s movement, and concepts of race. This is the first episode in our series recorded while at the 2014 Berkshire Conference on the History of Women. Having attending the University of the West Indies, Cave Hill for a year during my undergrad, this was a fun episode to record. The audio and full post can be found here.
