Gender in transition : discourse and practice in german-speaking Europe 1750-1830
The late Enlightenment saw an acute transformation of gender definitions in the German cultural areas of Europe, leading to a "polarization" of the sexes. Where early modern cultural norms had once affirmed a multitude of differences within society, modernity was founded on an ideal of equality which in practice applied only to white male citizens. The new dichotomies of gender, socioeconomic status, and race created by this practice held tremendous social implications for all Germans. Law and science inscribed a new set of morals with gendered virtues and social spheres. Masculinity and femininity came to be understood as opposites based in nature. The transformed gender system fuelled an epochal social reordering. This book recounts the ways in which this drama played out in German-speaking Europe during the transitional period between 1750 and 1830. Scholars examine the effect of gender in numerous realms of German life, including law, urban politics, marriage, religion, literature, natural science, fashion, and personal relationships.
