Feminist History Takes the Transnational Turn

Making Women's Histories

This chapter examines the recent union of transnational history and feminist history that has resulted in a field called transnational feminist history, which it describes as sharing core values, especially in disrupting conventional narratives by decentering those actors and processes that have often dominated historical studies. It first provides an overview of transnational history and transnational feminism before discussing four areas of inquiry important in both fields and that highlight the cross-fertilization between them: periodization, politics of place, identification, and infrastructures and social movements. It also explains how transnational feminist history brings to the fore international organizations crossing borders, allowing women to develop feminist consciousness.

Keywords:   transnational history, feminist history, transnational feminist history, transnational feminism, periodization, politics of place, identification, infrastructures, social movements, international organizations
