Abstract:Finally, in addition to tracing the representations of native women in colonial texts and at the colony level (Tanganyika), I interrogate the colonial numbers, the official and extra-governmental demographic indices, and analyze the texts and numbers produced about local-level Kilimanjaro. In reanalyzing early colony-level demographic data and analyzing a new database from Kilimanjaro parish registers, I question the tempo of demographic change and the assumed relationship between population growth and biomedicine development in East Africa.
