Colonial Anxieties, Local Debates and Struggles over 'Prostitution' in Southern Nigeria, 1890-1960.
The thesis focuses on debates about prostitution in colonial south Nigeria, particularly in Lagos and a series of towns and villages that provided in-migration to the city. It asks what they can tell us about conflicts over gender and gender relations in this period.
