A new book by Glendon history professor Yukari Takai examines immigration and cultural development in North America. Gendered Passages: French-Canadian Migration to Lowell, Massachusetts, 1900-1920 focuses on the family dynamics in the French-Canadian immigrant experience in New England. The challenges faced by women and children differed greatly from those the men encountered, and the recognition and delineation of these differences informs and inspires her work. Drawing on archival records, oral histories, newspapers, and contemporary observations in both English and French, Gendered Passages offers a fresh and insightful perspective on an fundamental aspect of North American history.
