Women, gender and migration, Clio. Women, gender, history, volume 51, 2020
Editors for this issue: Linda GUERRY & Françoise THÉBAUD
This number of Clio is devoted to a topic of considerable political and scholarly interest at the present time: it considers the historical relations between women, gender and migration. Drawing on fresh sources and approaches, the articles gathered here are concerned with large-scale migrations, from Antiquity to the very contemporary period: they advance new interpretations of migratory movements, and demonstrate the agency of women migrants as well as the gender-related constraints within migrating populations. They also explore the ways in which migration may affect femininity and masculinity and socio-sexual roles, using the concept of the re-ordering of gender.
