Contents:
Gendering modern German history : comparing historiographies and academic cultures in Germany and the United States through the lens of gender / Karen Hagemann and Jean H. Quataert -- The challenge of gender : national historiography, nationalism, and national identities / Angelika Schaser -- Military, war, and the mainstreams : gendering modern German military history / Karen Hagemann -- Blind spots : empire, colonies, and ethnic identities in modern German history / Birthe Kundrus -- The personal is political : gender, politics, and political activism in modern German history / Belinda Davis -- The order of terms : class, citizenship, and welfare state in German gender history / Kathleen Canning -- A tributary and a mainstream : gender, public memory, and historiography of Nazi Germany / Claudia A. Koonz -- Jews, women, and Germans : Jewish and German historiographies in a transatlantic perspective / Benjamin Maria Baader -- Religion and gender in modern German history : a historiographical perspective / Ann Taylor Allen -- Continuities and ruptures : sexuality in twentieth-century Germany : historiography and its discontents / Atina Grossmann -- The elephant in the living room, or, Why the history of twentieth-century Germany should be a family affair / Robert G. Moeller.
Summary: Writing on the history of German women has - like women's history elsewhere - undergone remarkable expansion and change since it began in the late 1960s. Today Women's history still continues to flourish alongside gender history but the focus of research has increasingly shifted from women to gender. This shift has made it possible to make men and masculinity objects of historical research too. After more than thirty years of research, it is time for a critical stocktaking of the ""gendering"" of the historiography on nineteenth and twentieth century Germany. To provide a critical overview.
