In their introduction to the theme of this issue Mieke Aerts and Lex Heerma van Voss sketch a number of differences between contemporary gender history and women’s history as it emerged in the 1970s. They see gender history as moving away from a narrow focus on equal rights and emancipation: nowadays, gender is studied as a complex historical and social category, in creative dialogue with other important ‘turns’ in historiography, as epitomised by postcolonial and transnational history. In this way the articles in this issue are able to demonstrate that subjects such as consumer culture, labour relations, education and religion, are not only very relevant to gender historians, but also make a crucial contribution to our understanding of modern Dutch history.
