9780415318099: The Feminist History Reader

The Feminist History Reader gathers together key articles, from some of the very best writers in the field, that have shaped the dynamic historiography of the past thirty years, and introduces students to the major shifts and turning points in this dialogue.

The Reader is divided into four sections:

  • early feminist historians' writings following the move from reclaiming women's past through to the development of gender history
  • the interaction of feminist history with ‘the linguistic turn’ and the challenges made by post-structuralism and the responses it provoked
  • the work of lesbian historians and queer theorists in their challenge of the heterosexism of feminist history writing
  • the work of black feminists and postcolonial critics/Third World scholars and how they have laid bare the ethnocentric and imperialist tendencies of feminist theory.

Each reading has a comprehensive and clearly structured introduction with a guide to further reading, this wide-ranging guide to developments in feminist history is essential reading for all students of history.

About the Author:

Sue Morgan is Principal Lecturer in History and Head of the School of Cultural Studies at the University of Chichester. She is the author of A Passion for Purity: Ellice Hopkins and the politics of gender in the late-Victorian church (1999), co-editor of Masculinity and Spirituality in Victorian Culture (2000) and editor of Women, Religion and Feminism in Britain, 1750--1900 (2002).

Review:

‘Advanced readers are likely to find much of interest in the Feminist History Reader ... Morgan’s was a difficult editorial task and the result is a stylish set of readings which will enable important issues about feminist historical theorizing to be addressed and debated in the classroom, particularly given that Morgan’s editorial viewpoint on the field is discussed in such an interesting and in-depth way.’Feminist Review
