Gender and Memory

Synopsis

Gender and Memory, the fourth volume of the International Yearbook of Oral History and Life Stories, explores the issue of the shaping of memory by gender. Are the different ways in which men and women are recalled in public and private memory, and also the differences in men's and women's own memories of similar experiences, simply reflections of unequal lives in gendered societies, or are they more deeply rooted? The Editors draw on original contributions relecting on the relationships between gender and memory in western and eastern Europe, China, Africa, Australia, the United States and Brazil.
