El genero en historia

By Anne Pérotin-Dumon


This virtual volume serves as the initial stage of a needed text on gender history in Spanish, for a Latin American audience. It presents an overview of the development of gender approaches over the last quarter century; describes and defines the analytical tools available to write history from a gender prespective; provides researchers, teachers and students with a rich corpus of reading material;  and introduces recent teaching and rapidly growing research on the field in Chile. \ud \ud The first part (5 chapters, approx. 60 p.), “El género en historia: Hitos y premisas” provides background and definitions on the topic. Its focus is methodological: it shows how the use of gender as a critical conceptual tool enlarges historical understanding in Latin America, the Caribbean, and the Atlantic World. It treats Latin America in the larger scope of Western history and gender studies in social sciences in general. \ud \ud A second section (approx. 1800 p.), “Antología de trabajos y fuentes”, includes about 40 selected scholarly works (5 of them translated into Spanish for the first time, as well as 10 original sources). This reading material deals primarily with Latin American history since the 16th C. It is distributed into 5 chapters with an introduction, each, by the author- editor (I: Combates por la historia; II: Género y relaciones; III: Género y diferencias; IV: Género e identidad social; V: Género y organización social)
