Ten Years After: Communism and Feminism Revisited

Ten Years After: Communism and Feminism Revisited forum Ten Years After Communism and Feminism Revisited Edited by Francisca de Haan Introduction Francisca de Haan The first volume of Aspasia, which came out in 2007, included a Forum on the question of whether communism and feminism were a contradiction in terms. The wealth of research published in the past decade was one reason to go back to that initial question and organize this Forum. In the past few years, there has been an explosion of new publications analyzing the relationship between communism and feminism and the gender regimes socialist states supported and produced. In 2015 alone, two French historical journals published an issue with contributions about this: Clio: Femmes, Genre, Histoire (“Le ‘socialisme reél’ à l’ èpreuve de genre”) and Vingtième Siècle: Re- vue d’Histoire (“Femmes, genres et communismes”). The 2015 volume of the Jahrbuch für Historische Kommunismusforschung was also dedicated to “Frauen im Kommunis- 4 5 mus.” And then a lot of work has been published in the region. This topic has also raised controversy, partly in relation to the work of Aspasia and some of its authors and editors. All this was reason to design a Forum in which seven scholars reflect on their research http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Aspasia Berghahn Books
