Women in Transnational History offers a range of fresh perspectives on the field of women’s history, exploring how cross-border connections and global developments since the nineteenth century have shaped diverse women’s lives and the gendered social, cultural, political and economic histories of specific localities.

The book is divided into three thematically-organised parts, covering gendered histories of transnational networks, women’s agency in the intersecting histories of imperialisms and nationalisms, and the concept of localizing the global and globalizing the local. Discussing a broad spectrum of topics from the politics of dress in Philippine mission stations in the early twentieth century to the shifting food practices of British women during the Second World War, the chapters bring women to the centre of the writing of new transnational histories.

Illustrated with images and figures, this book throws new light on key global themes from the perspective of women’s and gender history. Written by an international team of editors and contributors, it is a valuable and timely resource for students and researchers of both women’s history and transnational and global history.

About the Author:

Clare Midgley is Research Professor in History at Sheffield Hallam University, UK, and was President of the International Federation for Research in Women’s History (IFRWH) between 2010 and 2015. Her publications include Feminism and Empire (2007), Gender and Imperialism (1998) and Women Against Slavery (1992/1995). She is currently completing a new book on Liberal Religion and the Woman Question, which explores collaboration between Indian, British and American reformers.

Julie Carlier is the research coordinator of the Ghent Centre for Global Studies, an interdisciplinary research network at Ghent University in Belgium, where she also teaches on the transnational history of feminism.

Review:

"Just as women have always been at the nexus of the local and the global, women’s history has been and remains a matrix of transnational methods and approaches. These essays showcase a range of timely examples of why and how this has been so, offering students pathways into new ways of thinking about the networks, connections, and intersections that have shaped women’s lives."

Antoinette Burton, University of Illinois, USA

"Women in Transnational History demonstrates the wonderful results emerging from historical inquiries into the coincidence of gender and geography. The essays concern international political efforts, migrating cultural trends, traveling activism, and much more. This collection is a reminder of the continuing contribution to the vitality of transnational gender history of  the International Federation of Research in Women’s History."

Ellen Dubois, University of California, Los Angeles, USA

"Women in Transnational History does exactly what it promises to do: it offers not only important contributions to a number of questions in the area of gender history, but also proposes a different approach to transnational history. Any work of late modern transnational history will henceforth need to engage with this significant work and the innovative understandings presented here of gendered forms of political and cultural agency at the global level. The case studies, although spanning two centuries and four continents, form a meaningful whole and propose fresh, critical analyses of migration, nationalism, imperialism, and how the local and the global constitute each other."

Maud Bracke, University of Glasgow, UK

"Overall, this volume was satisfying and thought-provoking and a significant contribution to the field. I enjoyed the range of material and the varied styles and was challenged to think
about transnationalism in new ways. The introduction promised 'fresh perspectives and innovative conceptual approaches. (3)' It delivered."

Dr. Catherine Bishop, University of Sydney, Australia
