Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin - Gender as a Category of Knowledge

Dr. des. Levke Harders

PhD Project:

Gender and Discipline: A History of American Studies in the United States up to the 1960s

 

 

Description of the Project

 

This work represents a first intellectual history of American studies within the US: specifically I focus on the conceptional and discursive, as well as personal, institutional, and socio-structural situation for women scholars within the discipline. In my dissertation, I discuss interdependencies between gender and discipline in American studies in the United States. I analyze epistemological and discursive, as well as individual, institutional, and structural conditions that were of consequence for the status of academic »outsiders,« especially women.
