This Honours and Masters course offers an advanced level of enquiry into the history and historiography of women’s emancipation from the social construction of gender. Students engage in History discipline practices of archival research and theoretical approaches, informed by feminist and postcolonial studies, to strengthen their expertise in both critical analysis and knowledge, relevant for their theses.
Students will examine and explore how women, who were traditionally silenced in official and other kinds of records, articulated and demonstrated political influence and power across a variety of Europe's cultural and social contexts throughout history, shaping transnational and global landscapes by the turn of the twentieth century. Students will investigate how women and men contested biblical, classical and medical teachings about gender differences, with an emphasis on the Renaissance, Reformation, Enlightenment, revolutions, and suffrage movements as facilitators for women's freedom. Archival and other research, together with feminist and postcolonial perspectives, critical analysis, and historiographical interpretations enable students to communicate advanced levels of historical thinking and practice.
