The Republican Period in Historical Perspective
Reihe: Berliner China-Studien

The Chinese Republican period, often seen as representing a continuum between Imperial China and the People's Republic of China, was shaped by profound upheavals which also impacted strongly on gender relations. This volume presents the latest research on the situation of women during the Republican period, placing it in a historical perspective. In addition to contributions dealing with theoretical and methodological approaches to China-related women's research, a broad spectrum of experiences and discourses related to women in China is also considered: women and the state/women and the nation, political women and their posthumous careers, little traditions and discourses of otherness, women in social and economic life and women's education.
