This course will survey the history of women and gender relations in Europe from the Age of Enlightenment through to the present day. We will explore how gender has both shaped, and been shaped by key issues, ideas, and events in this period, including war and revolution; innovations in science, art, and industry; nation-building and social movements; and societal concerns ranging from crime to family life. In so doing, we will consider a wide variety of topics, from high politics to popular culture, and examine an array of historical sources, as we reflect upon a number of questions. How did gender systems affect the lives of women and men, and how were those gender systems transformed during the period under review? How did men and women conceive of gender, and gender relations, and in what forms was this manifested? Finally, how did gender intersect with other factors, such as race, class, sexuality, and national identity, in different times and places?
