Through a collection of essays by leading scholars on women's history and gender history, Gender and Change: Agency, Chronology and Periodisation questions conventional chronologies while reassessing the relationship between gender, agency, continuity and change.
  • Celebrates 20 years of the publication of the journal Gender & History
  • Reflects the extent to which gender analysis suggests alternatives to conventional periodisation. For example, whether the European Renaissance can be classified as the same period of great cultural advance when viewed from the perspective of women
  • Offers innovative historiographical and theoretical reflection on approaches to gender, agency, and change
