The eleventh volume of Aspasia, the international peer-reviewed yearbook of women’s and gender history of Central, Eastern, and Southeastern Europe (CESEE), is the first volume that has been edited without the guidance of our founding editor, Professor Francisca de Haan from Central European University. Francisca has established Aspasia as a significant publication in the field of gender and women’s history, and we hope to continue the work that she started with as much energy and commitment. We welcome Francisca to our Editorial Board. The articles in this volume of Aspasia cover a wide range of topics. Two articles tackle different meanings of revolution.
The thematic focus of the twelfth volume of Aspasia—the international, peer–reviewed yearbook of women’s and gender history of Central, Eastern, and Southeastern Europe (CESEE)—is women and violence. Violence has shaped the historical experiences of women in the region in fundamental ways, both at the personal and state levels. We were interested in issues extending from war and state terror to domestic violence and other manifestations of violence in the personal sphere.
