Books Info:

Re-presenting the Past free pdf This collection of essays by feminist historians is an examination of the innovative work being done in the field of women's history. As well as engaging with the processes through which women have been silenced, excluded and misrepresented in stories of the past, all of the chapters in this book demonstrate the effectiveness of the methodologies they propose in order to remedy this. The contributors draw upon a variety of research methods, and approach a wide range of sources including oral histories, autobiographies, biographical texts, newspapers and court reports. The authors explore how issues of sexuality, class, nationalism and colonialism informed the ways in which women have continued to be represented in stories of the past. All the contributions in this volume argue as much by example as discussion, that feminist analysis enables us to change our knowledge and understanding of women in history. In short, this volume engages with the representation, misrepresentation and re-presentation of women within accounts of our past(s).
