Focus and Scope

Storia delle donne [Women’s History] is an interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed journal published annually. Each issue is devoted to a theme that is particularly relevant to contemporary women and is re-examined within different cultures and societies often far removed in time and space.

The aim of each monographic issue is to trace back women’s individual and collective itineraries analysing their material and symbolic worlds against the backdrop of various geographic, socio-political, cultural and religious contexts. Storia delle donne is set out in two sections – Presente [Present] and Passato [Past] – in order to achieve continuity and discontinuity within a political perspective that takes gender studies into account, and is always sensitive to collective values. An additional section called Oltre il tema [Beyond the Theme] may host articles outside the theme of each issue, but still within the field of women’s history. Storia delle donne is specially interested in the work of young scholars, and is open to submissions of parts or remakes of PhD dissertations as well as articles produced through independent research.
