Andreas Stucki

Visiting Scholar, 2015-16

I am a visiting scholar at the Department of Iberian and Latin American Cultures at Stanford University, specializing in Iberian and Caribbean studies. I have published a book on forced resettlement of civilians in the Cuban wars of independence (Hamburger Edition, 2012) and essays in journals like Zeitschrift für Geschichtswissenschaft, Iberoamericana, and the Journal of Imperial and Commonwealth History.
I am currently researching the ‘female turn’ of empire in the late Portuguese and Spanish colonial states in Africa. I am interested in the increased activities of the official Iberian women’s organizations Mocidade Portuguesa Feminina and Sección Femenina in the African territories during the 1960s and 1970s. My goal is to gain a better understanding of how the advancement and integration of a functionary elite of African women was meant to provide for the continuity of Spanish and Portuguese (cultural) influence. The project examines the rhetoric of integration and its contradictory political practice as an intertwined history of the Iberian empires. Special emphasis is placed on questions related to colonial violence, gender, and the construction of belonging (identity).
