Books - New Acquisitions on Gender & History

As part of preparing for PhD comprehensive exams, I'm sitting in on Dr. Holly Grout's pro-seminar on Gender in European History.  My dissertation research about French and American soldiers in Vietnam has a large gender (masculinity) component, so this helps on multiple levels.

  1. Mary Poovey, Uneven Developments: The Ideological Work of Gender in Mid-Victorian England
  2. Judith Surkis, Sexing the Citizen: Morality and Masculinity in France, 1870-1920
  3. Judith Walkowitz, City of Dreadful Delight: Narratives of Sexual Danger in Late-Victorian London
  4. Ann Stoler, Carnal Knowledge and Imperial Power: Race and the Intimate in Colonial Rule
  5. Joan Scott, Only Paradoxes to Offer: French Feminists and the Rights of Man
  6. Mary Louise Roberts, Disruptive Acts: The New Woman in fin-de-siècle France
  7. Whitney Chadwick and Tirza Latimer eds., The Modern Woman Revisited: Paris Between the Wars
