When Was Women's and Gender History Over: A response to the state of (early modern French) historiography

 

A survey of recent publishing in the field of early modern French history reveals an overall retreat from gender as a "category of historical analysis". In this talk, Clare Crowston asks when women's and gender history ended and, more importantly, what impact the current lack of attention has on our understanding of fundamental questions in the field. In what ways did scholarship in women's and gender history rewrite pre-existing narratives and what has happened to fields we thought were transformed by these challenges? Why is it embarrassing to be a "women's historian" in 2016?

This event is free and open to all. Registration is required. For further information, please contact Joseph Hawker.
