History Women Slavery And Resistance The Class Is Called Women Slavery And Res
History – Women, Slavery and Resistance:
Hello, I was wonder if someone could help me out with my homework assignment for my history class. The class is called Women, Slavery and Resistance. I have to develop an essay comparing and contrasting the variety of forms of slave women’s resistance and developing an explanatory typology including these forms. I have never written a typology, so I’m not sure how to go about this assignment. The books we have read so far in the course are: “Closer to Freedom” By Stephanie Camp; “Celia, A Slave” By Melton McLaurin; A handout on “Mrs. Dred Scott”; “Harriet Tubman” By Catherine Clinton; “Driven Towards Madness” By Nikki Taylor; and “The Bondwoman’s Narrative,” Hannah Crafts. I guess I am confused as to what a typology is, how to write one, and how to go about organizing my paper. We discussed so many forms of women’s resistance to slavery, that I am having trouble figuring out how to classify/sort them all out in list form (to brainstorm), let alone in essay form. If anyone could help me out with suggestions, tips, or guidance on this, I would greatly appreciate it!
