Journal Engendering the Past

Press here to get to the Journal Homepage

This journal was created by postgraduate History students from the University of Glasgow. We aim on establishing a postgraduate, international community for the study of gender in the social sciences.

Our goal is to use gender as a tool of analysis, e.g. to reinterpret historical timeframes . We maintain that gender is a useful tool of analysis not only for historical research but for a variety of disciplines. We were inspired to produce the journal as we felt there was a space needed for a theoretical gender approach in historical and various interdisciplinary postgraduate works. We chose to organise ourselves as a collective in order to avoid academic hierarchy and to open the journal to a wide range of international contributions from the postgraduate community. As a collective we reflect on the wider societal relevance of our research; we believe, as postgraduate students, we can make valuable contributions to debates in our field of studies.

  • We, as a collective, established the journal on the basis of providing a space for international, interdisciplinary postgraduate work on gender and sexuality:
  • We are dedicated to examining gender across space and time, whilst understanding the meaning of gender depends on its historical and social context; the same can be said for sexuality and patriarchy.
  • We encourage contribution from a variety of subjects. We maintain that an interdisciplinary approach is the future of academic culture.
  • We hope to create an international community of postgraduate scholars committing their research to gender analysis.
