    Master-uppsats, Stockholms universitet/Institutionen för kultur och estetik

    Sammanfattning : This thesis examines the establishment of two British Sierra Leone colonies during the years 1787 and 1792 as migration phenomenons. While previous research has given much attention to the two colonies because of their peculiar origin and links to the abolition movement, fewer studies considers how the two stack up against other forms of early modern migration, the impact by individual resources on migration routes and mobility decisions, and how migration became interlinked to political and social upheaval of the times.

  5. 5. “I’ve a right to think” : A Reading of Alice in Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland as a Reflection of Early Feminism in the Victorian Era


    Författare :Josephine Flottrong; [2019]
    Nyckelord :Alice’s adventures in Wonderland; Lewis Carroll; the Victorian era; early feminism; education; equality; emancipation;

    Sammanfattning : In this essay I claim that Alice in Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland is a character who reflects the early feminist movement in the 19th century. By reading Alice in terms of a resemblance to the early feminist activists and the first modern feminist text A Vindication of the Rights of Woman by Mary Wollstonecraft, I explore the idea of Alice’s characteristics being comparable to those values and thoughts which the feminist movement expressed.
