Re: Gender and Nationalism: A Friendly Exchange

What a wonderfully thoughtful exchange! I totally agree that there is need for more studies that explore how gender functions as a historical variable. However, my own impressionistic archival and literature survey related to a significant historical moment (Shrivastava, 2016) makes me see the existing literature on women’s participation in nationalist movements in a very different light.

Gender and Nationalism: A Friendly Exchange

Jill Vickers, Distinguished Research Professor in Political Science at Carleton University in Ottawa and a member of H-Nationalism's advisory board, recently asked our list “why are women invisible in our discussions?”  Vickers also explored this “invisibility” in her 2015 address as President of the Canadian Political Science Association, “Can We Change How Political Science Thinks? ‘Gender Mainstreaming’ in a Resistant Discipline” (Canadian Journal of Political Science, vol. 48, no. 4, pp. 747 - 770).

'Invisible Women in History and Global Studies: Reflections from an Archival Research Project' Globalizations, 14(2) 2016, DOI: 10.1080/14747731.2016.1158905

At the invitation of our Advisory Board, Dr. Meenal Shrivastava of Athabasca University offers H-Nationalism the following summary of her recent article from Globalizationswhich questions the continuing invisibility of the significant scale of the involvement of women in historical movements/moments.
