Title: The Nameless and the Named: Black Female Caretakers in the Danish West Indies 1848-1917
This presentation focuses on the representation of black, female caretakers of the Danish West Indies. It is based on empirical findings in Danish archives, libraries and museum collections: Paintings, photographs, artefacts, book excerpts and letters. The Black, female caretaker – nurse, nanny, nana – is abundantly represented in the archives. But the names and other information about the women are rare.
