Gender and history node discussion group - 5th session

Presenter/s: Gender Institute History node

Event type: Discussion group

Event date: Friday, 21 September 2018 - 12:30pm

Event venue: Fellows Bar and Cafe, University House, ANU

With the renewed use of slogans such as ‘smash the patriarchy’, and following our discussion earlier this year of Judith Bennett’s ‘Patriarchal Equilibrium’, we would like to continue questioning the analytical value of the concept of patriarchy. To ignite our thoughts we will read the introduction of a recent forum in Gender & History on ‘Reconsidering patriarchy in early modern Europe and the Middle East’ by Merry Wiesner-Hanks.

If you are able to join us please contact Dr Karen Downing for the reading.
