Description

This collection of essays examines the construction of gender norms in early modern and modern Germany.; The modes of reinforcement by the state, the church, the law and marriage, and the resistance to these norms by individuals, are central to each of the contributions.; It examines discourses of the body and sexuality and the relations between gender and power. Similarly, the usefulness of the "public/private paradigm" familiar to gender historians is further challenged.

About the Series

Women's and Gender History

Recent years have witnessed a variety of challenges to the legitimacy of women's history, ranging from the deconstructions of French theory to the advent of 'gender' studies with its post-feminist implications. This series aims to re-establish women's history and to continue to challenge the assumptions of much mainstream history.
