continues to grow, with new essay collections on Women,
Agency and the Law, 13001700 (p.3) and Interpreting
Sexual Violence, 16601800 (p.3). Other highlights include

Sex, Identity and
Hermaphrodites in Iberia,
15001800
Richard Cleminson and
Francisco Vzquez Garca
Early modern European thought held
that men and women were essentially
the same, with social forces creating
their differences. Such a view made
the existence of hermaphrodites easy
to accept. During the seventeenth
century, medical and legal arguments
began to turn against this one-sex
model, with hermaphroditism seen
as a medieval superstition. This
book traces this change in Iberia in
comparison to the earlier shift in
thought in northern Europe, and with
concurrent ideas in Latin America.

The Politics of Reproduction
in Ottoman Society,
18381900
Glhan Balsoy
Epidemics, migration and territorial
losses led to population decline in
early nineteenth-century Turkey.
In response, Ottoman elites began
a programme of population growth,
based on increased birth rate and
reduced infant mortality. Three
policies were initiated to achieve this:
the professionalization of midwives, a
ban on abortion and greater medical
care during pregnancy. Balsoy uses
previously untapped archival sources
to examine these developments,
arguing that these changes caused
reproduction to become a political
experience.

Age and Identity in
Eighteenth-Century England
Helen Yallop
Yallop looks at how people in
eighteenth-century England
understood the lifelong process of
growing older. She reconstructs a set
of ideas about aging, including those
around gender, identity and change.
Advances in science and medicine
at this time meant that scholars and
doctors could investigate why the body
got older, how aging was experienced
and what the aging body signifed in
society.
An important new study that
signifcantly advances our
understanding of the history of aging.

of sources to paint a nuanced portrait
of the eighteenth centurys views of the

Attwood argues for a multifaceted

Why Race and Gender Still
Matter: An Intersectional Approach
Editors: Namita Goswami, Maeve
M ODonovan and Lisa Yount
Intersectionality, the attempt to
bring theories on race, gender,
disability and sexuality together,
has existed for decades as a
theoretical framework. Despite this
it remains almost entirely absent
from contemporary philosophical
thinking. The essays in this volume
explore how intersectionality can be
applied to modern philosophy, as
well as looking at other disciplines
political science, education, law,
art and history where work on
philosophical intersectionalism is
already developing.

This collection of essays looks at the
various ways in which women have
coped fnancially in a male-dominated

particular had more agency than has
previously been assumed.

Sex in Japans Globalization,
18701930: Prostitutes, Emigration
and Nation-Building
Bill Mihalopoulos
Mihalopoulos offers a new perspective
on the relations between gender
hierarchies and the political economy
in a newly modernized Japan. The
peasant class were sent overseas as
free labourers in a state-sponsored
programme that also sought to
maintain traditional codes of
behaviour and morally acceptable
forms of work. This study examines
the particular impact of these
restrictions on Japanese prostitutes
abroad and reveals how the freedom
offered to the poor by the state was
limited and highly selective.

best analysis in English of Japanese

1870 to 1930. American Historical

Rural Unwed Mothers: An
American Experience, 18701950
Mazie Hough
Between 1880 and 1920 there was a
sea change in the public response to
unwed mothers. What had once been
a community issue became a central
concern of the new federal Childrens
Bureau and social work professionals,
whilst in urban areas across the
country middle-class women opened
more than 150 homes for unwed
mothers. Drawing extensively
from agency records, newspaper
accounts, sociological studies and
court documents, Hough explores
the experiences of rural white unwed
mothers in Maine and Tennessee.
This is a fresh and much needed
microscopic view of a neglected topic ...

Gwen Ffrangcon-Davies,
Twentieth-Century Actress
Helen Grime
Ffrangcon-Davies was a famous
actress whose career spanned most of
the twentieth century. Her personal
story is a journey through a social and
cultural landscape in which what it
meant to be a woman, an actress and
a lesbian shifted enormously. Drawing
on material held in Ffrangcon-Daviess
personal archive, Grime reveals
a skilled navigator of social and
professional networks who excelled in
playing with notions of identity and
confounded societys expectations,
fnally defying all attempts at reductive
categorization.
In this fascinating and poignant
biography, Grime moves between
dominant and hidden histories, to revise
and revive the life and work of Gwen
Ffrangcon-Davies, revealing not only
a radical and unexpected story but also
the power that the dominant history
had to suppress it Gilli Bush-Bailey,

Green asserts that Maries success

the achievements of her mother. The
careers of the two women are further
used to argue that scholarly success in
the late nineteenth and early twentieth
century was only possible through
sustained engagement with the (male)
establishment.

The Lesbian Muse and Poetic
Identity, 18891930
Sarah Parker
Throughout history the poetic muse
has tended to be (a passive) female
and the poet male. This dynamic
caused problems for late Victorian
and twentieth-century women poets;
how could the muse be reclaimed and
moved on from the passive role of
old? Parker looks at fn-de-sicle and
modernist lyric poets to investigate
how they overcame these challenges
and identifes three key strategies:
the reconfguring of the muse as a
contemporary instead of a historical/
mythological fgure; the muse as a
male fgure; and an interchangeable
poet/muse relationship, granting
agency to both.

and her juvenilia are examined in the
context of civil society and gender.

Austen is presented as a writer
who not only participated in late
eighteenth-century debates, but who
is able to address twenty-frst-century
concerns of a theoretical and practical
nature.
Steiners text is unique both for its
broad-ranging philosophical treatment
of Austens work, and for the sustained
feminist reading that carefully links
Austens civilising process to the
concerns of contemporary readers.

McGuire examines the presentation

cultural medium of the novel affords
a space to examine representations of
suicide, as female characters do not
merely take their lives in these works

Fictions of Dissent: Reclaiming

Writing of the Late Nineteenth Century

Traditional divisions between
Victorian and American studies have
largely dictated that these two groups
of writers be treated as isolated

womens studies and book history to
bridge this gap.

Aestheticism and the
Marriage Market in Victorian
Popular Fiction:
The Art of Female Beauty
Kirby-Jane Hallum
Based on close readings of fve
Victorian novels, Hallum presents
an original study of the interaction
between popular fction, the
marriage market and the aesthetic
movement. She uses the texts to trace
the development of aestheticism,
examining the differences between
the authors, including their approach,
style and gender. Wider issues
concerning Victorian womanhood and
of marriage as a commodity are also
discussed.

Womens University Fiction,
18801945
Anna Bogen
The rise of the middle classes brought
a sharp increase in the number of
young men and women able to attend
university. Developing in the wake
of this increase, the university novel
often centred on male undergraduates
at either Oxford or Cambridge. Bogen
argues that an analysis of the lesser
known female narratives can provide
new insights into education, religion,
politics, literary culture and sexuality.
Works by Virginia Woolf, Rosamond
Lehman and Vera Brittain as well
as many forgotten writers are used
as case studies and are set in their
literary and historical context. The
female university novel is shown to be
less a universal tale of coming-of-age
and more fraught with struggle and
compromise.

Picturing Womens Health

Womens lives changed considerably
over the course of the long nineteenth

became available to them, the ways
in which they were represented also
increased. The essays in this collection
examine women in diverse roles;
mother, socialite, prostitute, celebrity,
medical practitioner and patient. The
wide range of commentators allows a
diverse picture of womens health in
this period.

Female Piety and the Catholic
Reformation in France
Jennifer Hillman
Hillman presents a fascinating account
of the role that women played during
the Catholic Reformation in France.
Using probate inventories from
aristocratic residences and private
correspondence, she reconstructs
the devotional practices of a network
of powerful women showing how
they reconciled Catholic piety with
their roles as part of an aristocratic
elite. This challenges the view that
the Catholic Reformation was an
exclusively male concern. It will be
of interest to those researching the
history of early modern devotional
culture, the Catholic/Counter
Reformation and early modern
European elites.

Desperate Housewives,
Neuroses and the Domestic
Environment, 19451970
Ali Haggett
The historical association between
femininity and neurosis is well
documented. Many recent studies have
seen womens mental health issues
in the aftermath of the Second World
War as being a direct consequence of
a lack of opportunity and the banality
of a domestic lifestyle. Although the
fgure of the desperate housewife is
familiar to us, Haggett suggests that
many women in the 1950s and 1960s
led satisfying lives and that gender
roles, while very different, were often
seen as equal.
