Gender in Urban Europe : Sites of Political Activity and Citizenship, 1750-1900 Hardback
Edited by Krista Cowman, Nina Javette Koefoed, Asa Karlsson Sjogren
Part of the Routledge Research in Gender and History series
This volume offers an integrated set of local studies exploring the gendering of political activities across a variety of sites ranging from print culture, courts, government and philanthropic bodies and public spaces, outlining how a particular activity was constituted as political and exploring how this contributed to a gendered concept of citizenship.
The comparative and transnational perspectives revealed through combining such work contributes to establishing new knowledge about the relationship between gender, citizenship and the development of the modern town in Northern Europe.
