Book Description

A Companion to Gender History surveys the history of women around the world, studies their interaction with men in gendered societies, and looks at the role of gender in shaping human behavior over thousands of years. It contains both thematic essays, which demonstrate how gender has intersected with other historical topics, and chronological-geographic essays, which explore gender in one area of the world during a specific period. All the essays consider the importance of class, region, ethnicity, race, and religion to the formation of gendered societies.The contributions are written by scholars from across the English-speaking world, including Canada, Britain, Australia, India, New Zealand, and the United States, as well as by scholars for whom English is not their first language. One of the key points to emerge from the volume as a whole is that no generalization about gender has applied to all times or all places. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

More About the Author

Teresa Meade was born in Iowa where she grew up on a farm, along with her eight brothers and sisters. She worked as a nanny, a hospital aid, and a waitress to earn money for college. When she was 19 years old, she left Iowa for Spain and a year of study at the University of Madrid and subsequent months hitchhiking around Europe. After 13 months abroad, she returned to the US with 25 cents in her pocket, a phone number of friends who loaned her money to get to Madison, Wisconsin, and the stamina to stand in line to sign up for classes. Over the next few years she studied, worked, protested injustice and eventually graduated with a degree in history. She worked for a year in Boston, and eventually made her way to Rutgers University where she entered a Ph.D. program in Latin American history. Impressed with the earnest dedication of Professor Peter Eisenberg, she began to study Brazil and eventually earned a Ph.D. Her books include "Civilizing" Rio: Reform and Resistance in a Brazilian City (1997), Science, Medicine and Cultural Imperialism, co-edited (1991), A Companion to Gender History, co-edited (2004), A Brief History of Brazil (2004, 2010) and A History of Modern Latin America (2010). She is married to a US historian, has two children, lives in Albany, NY and teaches at nearby Union College.
