Coherence and Contingency: ‘Women’ and ‘Gender’ Across Time

Editors Ellen Hartigan-O'Connor and Lisa G. Materson and contributors Daina Ramey Berry and Nakia Parker will discuss The Oxford Handbook of American Women's and Gender History, exploring thorny questions about coherence and contingency in writing the history of "women" and "gender" across the centuries.

About the Handbook: From the first encounters between European and indigenous peoples to the #metoo movement, the handbook boldly interprets the histories of women in North America and the United States as they participated in migration, colonialism, trade, warfare, artistic expression, and community building. Spanning centuries, these diverse women's stories reveal how ideas about gender shaped access to political and cultural power in North America.
