In and Out of the Cage: Women's and Gender History Written in Hungary in the State-Socialist Period

In and Out of the Cage: Women's and Gender History Written in Hungary in the State-Socialist Period In and Out of the Cage Women’s and Gender History Written in Hungary in the State-Socialist Period Susan Zimmermann ABSTRACT This article discusses writing on women’s and gender history in the pre-1945 period, wri en and published in Hungary under state socialism.

Abstract

In and Out of the Cage Women’s and Gender History Written in Hungary in the State-Socialist Period Susan Zimmermann ABSTRACT This article discusses writing on women’s and gender history in the pre-1945 period, wri en and published in Hungary under state socialism. Education, struggle for social change, legal history, and the history of work formed the four most important clus- ters in this rich body of historiography. Considering the position of these publications in the state-socialist or Cold War period and in Central Eastern European historiog- raphy and their uneasy relation to gender history as established since the 1980s, we can characterize them as a triply marginalized body of writing. The article pinpoints how the authors connected the history of women and gender to larger processes of emancipation, other categories of analysis, and transnational perspectives in historical writing, and explores their contribution to the historiography of women and gender in the twentieth century and to the intellectual history of state socialism. It also discusses why this historiography has fallen into oblivion.
