Disciplining women? Rice, mechanization, and the evolution of Mandinka gender relations in Senegambia


, : Disciplining women? Rice, mechanization, and the evolution of Mandinka gender relations in Senegambia. Signs 1991; 16(4): 651-681

This paper details a 150-year process of agrarian change in a peasant society that has experienced repeated efforts to intensify the labour process. The case study is drawn from a social history of Mandinka rice growers in Senegambia and repeated government efforts to intensify rice production in the Gambia River Basin over the past half century. The project questioned who was to work and under what conditions.
