Overview


Gender & History is now established as the major international journal for research and writing on the history of femininity and masculinity and of gender relations. Spanning epochs and continents, Gender & History examines changing conceptions of gender, and maps the dialogue between femininities, masculinities and their historical contexts. The journal publishes rigorous and readable articles both on particular episodes in gender history and on broader methodological questions which have ramifications for the discipline as a whole.


Aims and Scope


Gender & History is now established as the major international journal for research and writing on the history of gender and sexuality. Spanning epochs and continents, Gender & History aims to create productive debates and dialogues across subfields, historiographies, and theoretical orientations. It does so by publishing field-defining work on changing conceptions, practices and semiotics of gender--femininities, masculinities and their historical contexts.

The journal seeks stimulating essays both on particular episodes and themes in gender history and on broader theoretical and methodological questions that have ramifications for the discipline as a whole. We welcome submissions of visual artefacts as sources for the history of visual culture, as methodological experiments, or as theoretical interjections; and of theoretical or historiographical essays that consider novel ways of approaching gender analysis or the writing of gender history. We also encourage special forums combining two to four essays, with critical commentaries about how this particular alignment suggests new lines of inquiry or experiment.

Gender & History features:   

  • Forums debating topics such as same-sex love, gendering the nation, and sexuality and empire.

  • Essays discussing visual imagery, theoretical and historiographical issues, and experiments in teaching gender history.

  • Special issues on key themes, including dress and material strategies, citizenship, diaspora and violence.

  • An extensive book review section, including thematic reviews.
