Storia delle Donne https://oaj.fupress.net/index.php/sdd <p><em><strong>Storia delle donne</strong>&nbsp;</em>[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.</p> <p>The aim of each monographic issue is to trace back women’s individual and collective itineraries analysing&nbsp;&nbsp;their material and symbolic worlds against the backdrop of various&nbsp;geographic, socio-political, cultural and religious&nbsp;&nbsp;contexts.&nbsp;<em>Storia delle donne&nbsp;</em>is set out in two sections –&nbsp;<em>Passato&nbsp;</em>[Past] and&nbsp;<em>Presente&nbsp;</em>[Present] – in order to achieve continuity and discontinuity within a political perspective that takes gender studies into account, and is always sensitive to collective values.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>La rivista&nbsp;<strong><em>Storia delle Donne</em></strong>&nbsp;nasce dalla collaborazione di studiose specialiste di epoche e discipline diverse – formate in scuole di varie università italiane – e si propone come pubblicazione ad alto contenuto scientifico.&nbsp;<em>SdD</em>&nbsp;ha periodicità annuale, i numeri sono tematici e quasi del tutto privi di rubriche in ragione della scelta redazionale di presentare ciascun fascicolo come un&nbsp;<em>unicum</em>&nbsp;perché meglio siano colte, messe a fuoco e sviluppate l’evidenza e l’importanza dell’argomento proposto.<br>L’idea che è a fondamento del progetto&nbsp;<em>SdD</em>&nbsp;guarda al nesso tra storia e politica&nbsp;<em>delle</em>&nbsp;donne, ma accorda priorità a quello fra storia e politiche&nbsp;<em>per le</em>&nbsp;donne e&nbsp;<em>con le</em>&nbsp;donne; questa è una delle ragioni per cui la scelta del tema dei fascicoli è dettata dai processi in atto e dalle urgenze che la contemporaneità propone.<br>Il tema viene sviluppato nella sezione «Presente» da contributi che lo illustrano con incroci di approccio e metodo volutamente pluridisciplinari, senza che questo identifichi&nbsp;<em>SdD</em>&nbsp;con l’interdisciplinarietà degli&nbsp;<em>Women’s Studies</em>. Nella sezione «Passato» i saggi restituiscono lo spessore storico e diacronico nella&nbsp;<em>longue durée</em>&nbsp;che si snoda dalle civiltà antiche fino al Novecento. È stata prevista anche una sezione intitolata «Oltre il tema» dove vengono ospitati gli articoli di taglio rigorosamente storico, ma eccentrici rispetto al tema del fascicolo.<br><em>SdD</em>&nbsp;riserva particolare attenzione alle ricerche di giovani studiose e studiosi. In tutte e due le sezioni potranno essere pubblicate parti di tesi di laurea o di tesi di dottorato ed anche studi da queste indipendenti.</p> <p>Tutti i testi pubblicati in SdD sono valutati, secondo le modalità del doppio cieco (<em>double blind peer review</em>), da due&nbsp;<em>referees</em>&nbsp;individuati nell'ambito di un'ampia cerchia di specialiste e specialisti.</p> en-US Storia delle Donne 1826-7513 <p>Authors retain the copyright and grant the journal right of first publication with the work simultaneously licensed under a <strong>Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International Public License (<a href="https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/">CC-BY-4.0</a>)</strong>&nbsp;that allows others to share the work with an acknowledgment of the work's authorship and initial publication.</p> <p><a href="http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/" rel="license"><img src="https://i.creativecommons.org/l/by/4.0/88x31.png" alt="Creative Commons License"></a><br>This work is licensed under a <a href="http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/" rel="license">Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License</a></p> Editoriale https://oaj.fupress.net/index.php/sdd/article/view/7427 <p>AAVV</p> Isabella Gagliardi Aurora Savelli Copyright (c) 2019-11-11 2019-11-11 14 5 17 10.13128/SDD-25656 Arqueología pública y género. Estrategias para nuevas formas de relación con la sociedad https://oaj.fupress.net/index.php/sdd/article/view/7428 <p>L'Archeologia Pubblica, nonostante le innegabili implicazioni sociali delle sue pratiche e le sue possibilità di intervento, non ha affrontato una vera riflessione sulle questioni legate al genere e alle relazioni tra donne e uomini. Questo comporta almeno due conseguenze: da un lato, in molte delle pratiche discorsive permangono stereotipi non analizzati criticamente, dall'altro è proprio in alcune strategie di Archeologia Pubblica che i ricercatori interessati agli studi delle donne e al genere stanno trovando un modo di trasmettere nuovi concetti che non sempre trovano posto in espressioni più tradizionali. In questo articolo, passeremo in rassegna alcune delle pratiche che mettono le donne in primo piano per valutare la loro rilevanza e il loro impatto sulla società.</p> <div>Despite the undeniable social implications of its practice and the possibilities of intervention it has, Public Archaeology has not made a conscious reflection that includes issues related to gender and the relationships between women and men. This implies two consequences, on the one hand, in many of the discourses that are</div> <div>transferred to society, there are still stereotypes that have not been analysed critically, but on the other it is precisely in some strategies of Public Archaeology that the researchers interested in the women’s studies and gender are finding a way to transmit new concepts that do not always find a place in more traditional formats. In this article, we will review some of those practices that put women at the forefront to assess their relevance and their effect on society.</div> Paloma González Marcen Margarita Sánchez Romero Copyright (c) 2019-11-11 2019-11-11 14 19 42 10.13128/SDD-25657 Roman Women and Public History: la creatività del Web https://oaj.fupress.net/index.php/sdd/article/view/7429 <div>Moving from the mid-seventies’ debate in the USA on women’s role in the Ancient World, this paper highlights its contribution to a more articulated view of Roman women. It has left its mark not only on subsequent historiography, but also well beyond, as seen in recent YouTube videos on Roman women available on</div> <div>Internet. These latter display the creativity of their authors with their various levels of knowledge and technical expertise while catapulting the viewer into women’s daily lives in ancient Rome. In this perspective, such efforts can be seen as an excellent example of applied Public History and may well be useful in promoting gender</div> <div>studies relating to Roman history.</div> Ida Gilda Mastrorosa Copyright (c) 2019-11-11 2019-11-11 14 43 65 10.13128/SDD-25658 Donne del Risorgimento e Public History nel 150° dell’Unità nazionale: appunti su un’inclusione irrisolta https://oaj.fupress.net/index.php/sdd/article/view/7430 <div>The history of women is gradually integrating with the public narratives of Italian history, political and social, national and local. Public History products that appeared during or were solicited by the 150th anniversary of Unity provide a good test bed. Although the wealth of references or the proposal of entire products dedicated to women appear to be growing and qualitatively evolving, there are still solid and serious problems inherent not so much in the specifics of Women’s History, but rather in the usability of the Italian Risorgimento outside the academic circles. Ultimately, the dialogue between Public History and academic research on Women’s History has started, sometimes already fruitful, but still often neglected or superficial.</div> Maria Pia Casalena Copyright (c) 2019-11-11 2019-11-11 14 67 81 10.13128/SDD-25659 I musei delle donne nelle politiche europee. Dalle politiche sociali a quelle culturali https://oaj.fupress.net/index.php/sdd/article/view/7431 <div>The history of women and their representation in museums has been kept so far to the sidelines of discussion. Even within the European Union, the issue is mostly addressed in terms of equal rights, but the role of women in the cultural sector, the feminine gaze in the re-reading of history, anthropology, and science through museum exhibitions still remains in the background. If, on the one hand, the “She-Culture” project –dedicated to women’s museums and funded by the Culture 2007-2013 program within the strand related to cultural policies and– it seemed an opening in this sense, the failure to continue the commitment to support similar initiatives leads to the conclusion that Women’s Museums are not perceived as strictly belonging to the cultural domain but rather to the social one.</div> Cristina Da Milano Copyright (c) 2019-11-11 2019-11-11 14 83 101 10.13128/SDD-25660 Museos en femenino: un proyecto sobre igualdad, empoderamiento femenino y educación https://oaj.fupress.net/index.php/sdd/article/view/7432 <div class="page" data-page-number="21" data-loaded="true"> <div class="textLayer"> <div>The project titled Museums and Gender, Protagonism of Women in Museums, developed between 2009 and 2016, and supported until 2011 by the Ministry of Culture of Spain, involved an analysis and museographic proposal from a gender point of view, with the aim of returning the protagonism of History to Women, as</div> <div>builders of culture and civilization.

A pedagogy of seeing and possibility https://oaj.fupress.net/index.php/sdd/article/view/7433 <div>How can feminist adult educators use art galleries and museums to promote gender consciousness and change? Our response has been the Feminist Museum Hack, an adaptable pedagogical, methodological, analytical and interventionist practice we use in our university classroom teaching, community workshop facilitation, and researches and on a variety of museums and galleries across Canada and Europe. In this article, we discuss how the Hack draws on theories of representation and feminist visual and discursive methodologies to unmask, interrogate and deconstruct patriarchy’s epistemology of mastery that lies concealed in the visuals and narratives of exhibitions to produce, shape and mobilise problematic understandings of masculine, feminine and ‘the other’. As a pedagogy of possibility, the Hack stimulates the power of visuality in the form of a feminist oppositional gaze able to see, read and imagine the world as if it could be otherwise.</div> Darlene E.

Over the last 30 years, the Women’s Museum in Merano has not only become an integral part of the cultural landscape of the city, but also the founding seat of the International Association of Women’s Museums (IAWM). Through international networking a process of exchange, mutual support, and professionalization of women’s museums worldwide has been initiated.</div> Astrid Schönweger Copyright (c) 2019-11-11 2019-11-11 14 141 158 10.13128/SDD-25663 Museo delle Donne Valdesi.

Here we find, on the other hand, not so much “a different history,” as some stories of Waldensian women. Their ease of of moving about in the international Protestant world prompted us to</div> <div>widen our research to include women of diverse eras and countries. The Waldensian Middle Ages, the Reformation in Germany and Switzerland, English Puritanism, the Huguenot resistance in France, the American suffragist movement –these seem to us more accessible when they are narrated through the lives of women who thought, wrote, and acted, even if History seems to have forgotten them.</div> <div class="endOfContent">&nbsp;</div> </div> </div> <div class="page" data-page-number="9" data-loaded="true"> <div class="canvasWrapper">&nbsp;</div> <div class="textLayer">&nbsp;</div> </div> Toti Rochat Copyright (c) 2019-11-11 2019-11-11 14 159 167 10.13128/SDD-25664 Geografie del sacro e salvaguardia ambientale. Un’applicazione dell’ecologia di genere alle comunità etniche della frontiera Sino-Tibetana https://oaj.fupress.net/index.php/sdd/article/view/7436 <div>In this paper, the environmental tensions brought about by economic integration and increased state’s encroachment over the ecologically fragile communities of the Himalayan Plateau are examined through the lens of Kham Tibetan and Mosuo minorities of northwestern Yunnan. Special attention is paid to folk beliefs and</div> <div>worship patterns that shape perceptions, understandings and representations of the natural environment, as well as to the role played by indigenous women in preserving biodiversity. By so doing, the paper sheds light on the gendered nuances of resource utilization, management and allocation in upland forest ecosystems where</div> <div>man’s relation to nature is put in balance by a combination of religiously motivated taboos, non-hierarchical social arrangements, eco-sustainable solutions and relatively high levels of gender equality.</div> Tommaso Previato Copyright (c) 2019-11-11 2019-11-11 14 169 190 10.13128/SDD-25665
