“Women and the History of International Thinking”

Abstract

Over the last few decades, historians have reshaped the spatial and conceptual contours of intellectual history.  In particular, the prospect of a global intellectual history has provoked reflection on methods and questions of representativeness that transcend the default national parameters of this sub-field. In my lecture, I want to invite into these historiographical developments the place of women, and a specific international framing of ideas and their agents.  My aim is to outline a history of European “International Thinking” from the turn of the 19th century to the mid-20th century, with women at its centre. I argue that the history of women and international thinking requires us to expand not only where, but who and what counts in intellectual history.
