Women in Transnational History: Connecting the Local and the Global by Clare Midgley

Women in Transnational History offers a range of fresh perspectives on the field of women's history, exploring how cross-border connections and global developments since the nineteenth century have shaped diverse women's lives and the gendered social, cultural, political and economic histories of specific localities.

The book is divided into three thematically-organised parts, covering gendered histories of transnational networks, women's agency in the intersecting histories of imperialisms and nationalisms, and the concept of localizing the global and globalizing the local. Discussing a broad spectrum of topics from the politics of dress in Philippine mission stations in the early twentieth century to the shifting food practices of British women during the Second World War, the chapters bring women to the centre of the writing of new transnational histories.

Illustrated with images and figures, this book throws new light on key global themes from the perspective of women's and gender history. Written by an international team of editors and contributors, it is a valuable and timely resource for students and researchers of both women's history and transnational and global history.
