Download Geschlechtergeschichte by Claudia Opitz-Belakhal PDF

By Claudia Opitz-Belakhal

Die Geschlechtergeschichte ist mittlerweile aus der historischen Forschung und Lehre nicht mehr wegzudenken. Sie verdankt viele Anregungen der Sozialgeschichte, hat sich aber auch neueren Entwicklungen wie der Historischen Anthropologie und der Neuen Kulturgeschichte geöffnet und die dort geführten Diskussionen mit geprägt. In dieser Einführung liegt der Fokus auf den Debatten um Konzepte und Methoden. Themen sind unter anderem die Auseinandersetzungen um die Kategorie "Geschlecht" oder um das Verhältnis von Diskurs und Erfahrung, die Kritik an dualistischen Kategorien wie "männlich-weiblich" oder "öffentlichprivat ", aber auch die Geschichte der Geschlechterrollen, der (Frauen-)Arbeit und der Sexualität sowie schließlich die kritische Revision der Geschichtsschreibung.
