Women's Dimensions of the Past: Perceptions, Experiences, Representations. A collective monograph
The Center for Urban History, together with the Ukrainian Association for Researchers in Women's History in partnership with the Ethnology Institute of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine with the support of the Heinrich Boell Foundation of the Kyiv-Ukraine Office, is preparing to publish a collective monograph "Women's Dimensions of the Past: Perceptions, Experiences, Representations" under the scientific editorship of Oksana Kis.
The monograph results from the author's original research on a particular aspect of the women's past, which was presented at the international scientific online conference "Women's Dimensions of the Past: Perceptions, Experiences, Representations" (2021).
The collection contains scholarly works by women's history researchers who use different methodologies and approaches in their practice. The monograph focuses on the hardly known pages of women's past and raises the issues of, for example, ambiguous or silenced experiences. The topics of the monograph are organized around the problems of women's self-realization, cultural representations of women's experiences, practices of women's self-organization and civic participation, as well as the extremely relevant issue of violence, revealing the incredible potential of women's history for understanding both the gender aspects of the past and the origins of gender inequality that remains in Ukrainian society to this day, but also showing manifestations of women's capability in unfavorable or threatened historical circumstances.
Authors of the monograph: Viktoriia Ivashchenko, Marjana Baidak, Olena Haleta, Oksana Kuzmenko, Anastasiya Kanivets, Kateryna Iakovlenko, Igor Karpenko, Anastasiya Bozhenko, Sofiya Rosa-Lavrentiy, Mayhill Fowler, Olena Hanusyn, Anastasiya Myshusta, Maryna Voronina, Olga Labur, Iryna Savchenko, Alina Doboszewsk, Oleksiy Vinnychenko, Olga Posunko, Ivanna Cherchovych, Daria Mattingly, Olena Kondratiuk, Olesya Khromeychuk.
