Stubborn Silences: Writing the History of Chinese Women

Presenter / Panelists

Gail Hershatter, Research Professor & Distinguished Professor Emerita of History, UC Santa Cruz


Kathy Lazarus, Diversity & Cross-Cultural Communications Consultant

Scholars of  women and gender in China have often liked to make the claim that adding  a serious consideration of women to our understanding of Chinese  history would not be like adding a spice, as in “add women and stir,”  but  rather that it would alter the field fundamentally. Have we  delivered, collectively, on that claim? And what was it we most wanted  our students to learn that could help them to think about the world of  the past and the world they inhabit?
