Author(s): Barbara Brookes

NZ Politics, Religion & Social History | Secondhand

Sites of Gender makes a major contribution to the field of social history, both in New Zealand and internationally, by presenting through the microcosm of the southern suburbs of Dunedin, New Zealand, a unique picture of the changing social patterns of a entire nation. This important study is the fruit of five years' work into the complex ways in which gender operated as a social structure and a shaping force in the lives of the inhabitants of southern Dunedin from 1890 to the Second World War. It is significant in several ways: in its reliance on the huge database developed from the 1970s by the Caversham Project; in its interdisciplinary character, with contributions from the fields of history, geography, urban planning, gender studies and clothing technology; and its use of both qualitative and quantitative analysis including some vivid and lively insights from oral history.
