Aims & Scope

Aspasia is the international peer-reviewed annual of women’s and gender history of Central, Eastern, and Southeastern Europe (CESEE). It aims to transform European women’s and gender history by expanding comparative research on women and gender to all parts of Europe, creating a European history of women and gender that encompasses more than the traditional Western European perspective. Aspasia particularly emphasizes research that examines the ways in which gender intersects with other categories of social organization and advances work that explores transnational aspects of women’s and gender histories within, to, and from CESEE. The journal also provides an important outlet for the publication of articles by scholars working in CESEE itself. Its contributions cover a rich variety of topics and historical eras, as well as a wide range of methodologies and approaches to the history of women and gender.


Read the founding statement from the first issue of Aspasia here.


Submissions are welcome on all topics related to women's and gender history in CESEE on an ongoing basis.

In keeping with the current scholarly debates, in conversation with scholars from all over the world, Aspasia brings to an international audience innovative research and historical analyses. This important publication not only offers valuable materials for easy integration into the teaching of graduate and undergraduate courses, but also provides up-to-date information and analyses on books that focus on women's and gender history, in particular those published in the languages of this area, which otherwise rarely receive attention in English-language history journals.
