This A-Z reference work provides the first comprehensive reference guide to the wide range of women's historical writing, particularly since the Renaissance. The Companion covers biographical writing, travelogue and historical fictions, broadening the concept of history to include the forms of writing with which women have historically engaged. The focus is on women writing in English internationally, but historical and historiographical traditions from beyond the English-speaking world are also examined. Brief biographies of individual writers are included.
Mary Spongberg is Senior Lecturer in the Department of Modern History, Macquarie University, Australia. Ann Curthoys is Manning Clark Professor of History and Head of the History Department at the Australian National University. Barbara Caine is Professor of History at Monash University, Australia.
