Young Lee's picture

Dear Colleague,


The thematic focus of the twelfth volume of Aspasia: The International Yearbook of Central, Eastern, and Southeastern European Women's and Gender History is women and violence. The articles in this volume discuss issues extending from war and state terror to domestic violence and other manifestations of violence in the personal sphere. An “In Memoriam” section for prominent Turkish feminist scholar Şirin Tekeli follows. The volume concludes with reviews.
