The gender historians’ challenge

Starting with the questions raised in the seminar series Genushistoriens utmaningar(‘The challenges of gender history’), I describe and reflect on themilieus and contexts where I received my education in gender theory. The relation between interdisciplinary gender theory debate and new culturalhistory is addressed. The classifications of gender, class, and ethnicity have,in cultural-historical research, often been historicized and problematizedwithout the authors referring to defined gender theory concepts such asintersectionality. Based on my experience of researching early history, I raisethe questions of how we define gender history and how research on medievaland early modern society relates to mainstream gender scholarship. Finally, Itake up the gender historians’ gauntlet: the need to discuss and define genderhistory as an academic field.
