What is the gender of history? Gender studies have developed out of their feminist beginnings and have been deeply influenced by the new approaches in social history, anthropology and new cultural history. This lecture gives a historical survey on the beginnings of women and gender studies with focus on women's history and gender history. We will dicuss the central concepts and issues of critical gender studies and reflect on the discussions in the background. The topics we will discuss include the categories of gender, female and male; gender and class, estates, nation and ethnicity; public and private; politics of gender; history of the body and sexuality; the gender of history and historical research.
