Working Out Gender : Perspectives from Labour History, Hardback Book

Working Out Gender : Perspectives from Labour History Hardback

Edited by Margaret Walsh

Part of the Studies in Labour History series


Working out Gender brings together leading scholars and young researchers to examine the various ways in which gender is currently being used in labour history.

Having been a dynamic and contentious category of historical analysis since the mid 1980s gender continues to incite much debate.

This volume seeks a more informed view about labour history both by advancing the position of women and making their lives central to learning and by examining men as gendered persons and discussing the social construction of masculinity.

A broad perspective of labour history is scrutinised on both sides of the Atlantic, though the emphasis is given to European experiences.

Themes examined include work and workplace activities, the working classes, masculinity and politics, and the timespan ranges from the eighteenth century to recent times.
