Synopsis: The eight essays collected in this volume examine the practice of gender history and its impact on our understanding of European history. Each essay takes up a major methodological or theoretical issue in feminist history and illustrates the necessity of critiquing and redefining the concepts of body, citizenship, class, and experience through historical case studies. Kathleen Canning opens the book with a new overview of the state of the art in European gender history. She considers how gender history has revised the master narratives in some fields within modern European history (such as the French Revolution) but has had a lesser impact in others (Weimar and Nazi Germany). Gender History in Practice includes two essays now regarded as classics - Feminist History after the 'Linguistic Turn' and The Body as Method - as well as new chapters on experience, citizenship, and subjectivity.
About the Author: Kathleen Canning is Professor of History at the University of Michigan. She is the author of Languages of Labor and Gender: Female Factory Work in Germany, 1850-1914, also from Cornell, winner of the Conference Group for Central European History's Book Prize.
