“This is a collection of excellent scholarly historical essay honoring the late professor Jean H. Quataert. The articles by her colleagues and her former students further explore research themes (labor, law, and human rights) that were especially important features of Quataert’s own scholarly development” • Karen Offen, Stanford University
Jean Quataert redefined the boundaries of at least five historical fields including European socialism, women’s history and gender history, and international law and human rights. In this volume dedicated to her pioneering work, established and emerging scholars showcase the signature ways in which Quataert, as one of the discipline’s first women’s historians, has influenced how subsequent generations think about history writing as a form of intellectual activism. Gender in Germany and Beyond presents cutting edge historiographical commentary alongside new work which address subjects such as the history of German colonialism and women’s colonial leagues, human rights advocacy during the Cold War, and the complexities of turn of the century gay and lesbian rights organizing.
Jennifer V. Evans is professor of European history at Carleton University in Ottawa Canada. She writes about German and transnational histories of sexuality, visual culture, social media and memory. Her second monograph, The Queer Art of History: Queer Kinship after Fascism will be published by Duke University Press in the spring of 2023. Alongside her academic writing, she undertakes collaborative digital projects like the New Fascism Syllabus (www.NewFascismSyllabus.com) and the German Studies Collaboratory (www.GermanStudiesCollaboratory.org).
Shelley E. Rose is Associate Professor of History and Women’s & Gender Studies at Cleveland State University. She received her PhD from Binghamton University in 2010 where she was mentored by Jean Quataert. Her research focuses on digital humanities, protest and gender history. Recent articles include “Bertha von Suttner's Die Waffen nieder! and the Gender of German Pacifism” in Women Writing War, and “Place and Politics at the Frankfurt Paulskirche” in the Journal of Urban History.
