Research on women and gender in the early modern world is booming: the field has a scholarly society that is now more than twenty years old; a specialized annual journal; a tri-annual conference; and a book series. How the topic is studied has changed over time: while past scholarship tended to focus on Europe, research is now becoming increasingly global. With this development in mind, this new Routledge collection has a global appeal, with the pre-colonial, as well as colonial Americas, Africa, and the Muslim world, along with Europe, South Asia and East Asia, represented. Users will be introduced to the classics, as well as made aware of the newest scholarly developments.

Edited by a highly experienced and knowledgeable academic in the field, this new Routledge collection is structured topically (with both chronological and geographic diversity within each of the topics to allow regional, transregional, and global comparisons).
