Recensies en Artikelen

"These two editions bring us one step closer to making women and their legacies part of the center, rather than the edge. As Dowd reminds us, early modern women’s history and literature is still seen as marginal by the academy itself (262). This relegation to the margin can only be remedied if early modernists start embracing women, their histories, and their texts as integral parts of early modern studies. The essays in these two editions encourage their readers to do just that."

"Read as a whole, Gendered Temporalities is a powerful testament to the ongoing vitality of feminist frameworks for engaging material history, literary criticism, and theoretical debate."
- Melissa E. Sanchez, Early Modern Women, Fall 2020

Gendered Temporalities in the Early Modern World

De onderstaande tekst is niet beschikbaar in het Nederlands en wordt in het Engels weergegeven.
Is time gendered? This international, interdisciplinary anthology studies the early modern era to analyse how material objects express, shape, complicate, and extend human concepts of time and how people commemorate time differently. It examines conceptual aspects of time, such as the categories women and men use to define it, and the somatic, lived experiences of time ranging between an instant and the course of family life. Drawing on a wide array of textual and material primary sources, this book assesses the ways that gender and other categories of difference affect understandings of time.
