Description:17th Annual Conference of the Womens History Network: Gender and Generations: Women and Life Cycles
Location:University of Glasgow , Glasgow, United Kingdom
Subject:Concepts and experiences of the life-course have been critical to making sense of gender difference and womens lives in the past, and have traditionally been a central concern of historians of women. Integral to pioneering work on the history of reproduction and the family, work and leisure, and the body, science and medicine, analysis of the life cycles of women has nonetheless left many questions yet to be explored. This conference encourages comparison of womens life cycle experiences both across the widest possible range of times and places, and with the life cycle experiences of men. The focus will also be on inter-generational relations as an important, yet often neglected, explanatory factor in either continuity or change over time.
