Gender as a category of analysis in the history of the Holocaust / by Margaret Wells

Publication | Library Call Number: D804.348 .W45 1994

This thesis provides an analysis, from a feminist theoretical framework, of the extent to which and the manner in which gender is used as a category of analysis by mainstream historians, oral historians, and feminist historians of the Holocaust. The implications of using gender as a category of analysis are explored in terms of the following five interrelated issues: the political uses of memory/history; women's agency in history; the intersection of gender with other discursive practices that inscribe dominance--especially the construction of race; the role of women's experience in the writing of feminist history, and, finally, the construction of women's difference, especially in terms of their role in reproduction and child rearing within a gender system which constructs women by their otherness from men.
