The series "Gendered Violence" explores questions of violence and intersectional gender from Late Antiquity through the late nineteenth century. In the modern era, violence is most commonly perceived as the exercise of destructive physical force. However, the word does not map squarely with the notion of violence as understood in this new series. Publications in "Gendered Violence" examine multiple dimensions of aggression, coercion, intimidation, and repression, whether incidental, subversive, structural, hegemonic, or even strangely regenerative. Inevitably, stories of suppression end up being stories of transformative coping or transgressive survival. We entertain in-depth studies of individuals whose identities or segments of their lives were significantly defined by violence writ large; that includes how violence affected those who carried it out. The notion of gender in "Gendered Violence" is broad. We welcome works that explore the gendering of institutions, social groups, concepts, biology, the natural world, and so forth. It is expected that each submission be theory-based and explicit about how the author/s understands both violence and gender. The book series maintains a wide geographical, chronological, and methodological approach and welcomes submissions for monographs, thematically coherent essay collections, and conference proceedings dealing with topics spanning Late Antiquity to 1900 in Eastern and Western Europe, including works on European colonization.
