In Search of the Female Hobo
AbstractThe following article questions the absence of the female hobo in American history. Focusing on narratives produced by self-identified hobos and hobo organizations of the late-nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries, the author contends that the female hobo is located in the deconstruction of discourses of hobo masculinity. Résumé L’article suivant questionne l’absence d’ouvrières saisonnières dans l’histoire américaine. En se concentrant sur les narrations créées par des ouvrières saisonnières qui se sont auto- identifiées et sur les organismes d’ouvriers saisonniers de la fin du dix-neuvième siècle et du début du vingtième siècle, l’auteure soutient que l’ouvrière saisonnière est située dans la déconstruction des discours de la masculinité de l’ouvrier saisonnier.
