Abstract

This chapter examines how feminist legal history is conceived of as a unified field of study. The first part surveys the current state of the field, and by setting aside national borders and disciplinary origins, pays attention to the broader themes, topics, and issues feminist legal history has chosen to privilege. The second part, building upon this presentation of the field, by drawing attention, not only to the thematics of feminist legal history, but also to the process of its production, offers a critical understanding of what exists; in particular, the implications of its interdisciplinary nature. Finally, in pursuing a critical account of the work produced, possibilities for otherwise thinking of and ‘doing’ feminist legal history are considered.
