It moves beyond treating them as simply individuals and looks to the social and intellectual forces that encouraged them to study history and, at the same time, would often limit the reach and define the nature of their study.Thiscollection of essays speaks to female practitioners of history over the past four centuries that published original histories, some within a university setting and some outside.By analysing the values these early women scholars faced, readers can understand the broader social values that led women historians to exist as a unit apart from the career path of their male colleagues."@en ;
