Civil society and gender justice : historical and comparative perspectives by Karen Hagemann( )

20 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and held by 823 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Civil society and civic engagement have increasingly become topics of discussion at the national and international level. The editors of this volume ask, does the concept of 'civil society' include gender equality and gender justice? Or, to frame the question differently, is civil society a feminist concept? Conversely, does feminism need the concept of civil society? This important volume offers both a revised gendered history of civil society and a program for making it more egalitarian in the future. An interdisciplinary group of internationally known authors investigates the relationship between public and private in the discourses and practices of civil societies; the significance of the family for the project of civil society; the relation between civil society, the state, and different forms of citizenship; and the complex connection between civil society, gendered forms of protest and nongovernmental movements. While often critical of historical instantiations of civil society, all the authors nonetheless take seriously the potential inherent in civil society, particularly as it comes to influence global politics. They demand, however, an expansion of both the concept and project of civil society in order to make its political opportunities available to all."--Page 4 of cover

Children, families, and states : time policies of childcare, preschool, and primary education in Europe by Karen Hagemann( )

15 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 622 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Due to the demand for flexible working hours and employees who are available around the clock, the time patterns of childcare and schooling have increasingly become a political issue. Comparing the development of different "time policies" of half-day and all-day provisions in a variety of Eastern and Western European countries since the end of World War II, this innovative volume brings together internationally known experts from the fields of comparative education, history, and the social and political sciences, and makes a significant contribution to this new interdisciplinary field of compa
Gendered nations : nationalisms and gender order in the long nineteenth century( Book )

13 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 419 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book examines how gender and nation legitimize and limit the access of individuals and groups to national movements and the resources of nation-states. From problems of inclusion, exclusion and difference, national wars and military systems to national symbols, rituals and myths, contributors present a diverse array of critical perspectives, methodological approaches, and case-studies that are intellectually provocative and will help to guide future research as well as orient it toward international comparison." "This book raises new questions about nation and gender and provides an assessment of the state of research in different countries for all those interested in cultural and social history, politics, anthropology and gender studies."--Jacket
Masculinities in politics and war : gendering modern history( Book )

14 editions published between 2004 and 2008 in English and held by 378 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this collection, a group of historians explores the role of masculinity in the modern history of politics and war. Building on three decades of research in women's and gender history, the book opens up new avenues in the history of masculinity. The essays by social, political and cultural historians therefore map masculinity's part in making revolution, waging war, building nations, and constructing welfare states. Although the masculinity of modern politics and war is now generally acknowledged, few studies have traced the emergence and development of politics and war as masculine domains in the way this book does. Covering the period from the American Revolution to the Second World War and ranging over five continents, the essays in this book bring to light the many "masculinities" that shaped -- and were shaped by -- political and military modernity."--Publisher description

18 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and held by 327 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume addresses war, developing political and national identities and the changing gender regimes of Europe and the Americas between 1775 and 1820. Military and civilian experiences of war and revolution, in free and slave societies, both reflected and shaped gender concepts and practices, in relation to class, ethnicity, race and religion"--
Soldiers, citizens and civilians : experiences and perceptions of the Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars, 1790-1820 by A Forrest( Book )

17 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 307 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Revisiting Prussia's Wars Against Napoleon : History, Culture and Memory by Karen Hagemann( Book )

13 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 270 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 2013, Germany celebrated the bicentennial of the so-called Wars of Liberation (1813–1815). These wars were the culmination of the Prussian struggle against Napoleon between 1806 and 1815, which occupied a key position in German national historiography and memory. Although these conflicts have been analyzed in thousands of books and articles, much of the focus has been on the military campaigns and alliances. Karen Hagemann argues that we cannot achieve a comprehensive understanding of these wars and their importance in collective memory without recognizing how the interaction of politics, culture, and gender influenced these historical events and continue to shape later recollections of them. She thus explores the highly contested discourses and symbolic practices by which individuals and groups interpreted these wars and made political claims, beginning with the period itself and ending with the centenary in 1913."--
Representing masculinity : male citizenship in modern Western culture by Stefan Dudink( Book )

19 editions published between 2007 and 2012 in English and held by 255 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The idea that citizenship was the right of all humanity emerged during the French Revolution. However, this right was limited by gender, class and race. Studying Europe and its colonies and, the United States, Lebanon, and Dutch Indonesia, this book analyses images of masculine citizenship in political rhetoric, culture, art andand various colonial political struggles from the 18th to the 20th centuries. Politicians manipulated the rhetoric of masculine citizenship, using images of paternity and fraternity. Art represented competing images of the masculine citizen, ranging from the black revolutionary to the neo-Greek white statue. Colonial Political subjects in empires and colonies subjects appropriated and subverted these western ideals, revealing the exclusions in the rhetoric of masculine citizenship."--Publisher's description
War, demobilization and memory : the legacy of war in the era of Atlantic revolutions by Alan I Forrest( )

11 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The years from 1770 to 1830 were scarred by war throughout the Atlantic world. These were wars about empire and global hegemony, as well as struggles of liberation and decolonization. During this era the Atlantic became a highway for exchange not only of peoples and commodities, but also of ideas and cultural practices. New forms of mass warfare, for which patriotic-national propaganda mobilized soldiers and civilians alike, characterized these conflicts in Europe and the Americas. The contributors to this volume, all established experts in their field, examine the processes of military, economic, political, social and cultural demobilization after these wars, not only by states but also by local communities and individuals, and explore the long-term legacy of these conflicts. They discuss how their aftermath influenced politics, society and culture, including the gender order, and ask what shaped the contested and changing memories of these wars in the decades that followed

Gender and the long postwar : the United States and the two Germanys, 1945-1989 by Karen Hagemann( Book )

6 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gender and the Long Postwar examines gender politics during the post-World War II period and the Cold War in the United States and East and West Germany. The authors show how disruptions of older political and social patterns, exposure to new cultures, population shifts, and the rise of consumerism affected gender roles and identities. Comparing all three countries, chapters analyze the ways that gender figured into relations between victor and vanquished and shaped everyday life in both the Western and Soviet blocs. Topics include the gendering of the immediate aftermath of war; the military, politics, and changing masculinities in postwar societies; policies to restore the gender order and foster marriage and family; demobilization and the development of postwar welfare states; and debates over sexuality (gay and straight)

Gendering post-1945 German history : entanglements( Book )

4 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Although 'entanglement' has become a keyword in recent German history scholarship, entangled studies of the postwar era have largely limited their scope to politics and economics across the two Germanys while giving short shrift to social and cultural phenomena like gender. At the same time, historians of gender in Germany have tended to treat East and West Germany in isolation, with little attention paid to intersections and interrelationships between the two countries. This groundbreaking collection synthesizes the perspectives of entangled history and gender studies, bringing together established as well as upcoming scholars to investigate the ways in which East and West German gender relations were culturally, socially, and politically intertwined"--
