Women have had a special relationship with the camera since the advent of photographic technology in the mid-nineteenth century. Photographers celebrated women as their subjects, from intimate family portraits and fashion spreads to artistic photography and nude studies, including Man Ray’s Violon d’Ingres. Lesser known— and lesser studied— is the history of women photographers, who continue to make invaluable contributions to this flourishing art form. Featuring more than 300 illustrations, A History of Women Photographers is the only comprehensive survey of women photographers from the age of the daguerreotype to the present day. In this edition, author Naomi Rosenblum expands the book’s coverage to include additional photographers and fourteen new images. The text and the appendix of photographer biographies have been revised throughout, and Rosenblum also provides a new afterword, in which she evaluates the influence of rapidly changing digital technology on the field of photography and the standing of women photographers in the twenty-first century.

"This history of women's accomplishments in photography ranges around the world and throughout the entire history of the medium from the mid-1800s to the present. Women have made vital contributions to photography both as a profession and as an art form from the very beginning. In every aspect of the medium - portraiture, social and scientific documentation, advertising, photojournalism, personal expression - women have been highly active creators. Yet before the first edition of this book was published, in 1994, their achievements had long been overlooked." "With A History of Women Photographers, Dr. Naomi Rosenblum has helped set the record straight. Works by nearly 260 photographers are reproduced here."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved

This anthology is dedicated to pictures of women taken by women. It begins with photographs by the two great female photographers of the 19th century, Clementina Lady Hawarden and Julia Margaret Cameron, and covers a period of over 100 years to the present day. Some 160 images by 90 photographers present us with the entire spectrum of female self-definition both behind and in front of the camera. As such, the four major themes of social reality, the family, the female body and virtual reality come to the fore with their multifarious pictures from the worlds of art, literature, fashion, dance and show business. There are self-portraits as well as female photographers’ portraits of female photographers, daughters, mothers and, of course, several important female figures including Virginia Woolf, Greta Garbo, Martha Graham, Simone de Beauvoir, Maria Callas, Madonna, Hillary Clinton, and even Her Majesty the Queen.

The Routledge History of Women in Europe since 1700 is a landmark publication that provides the most coherent overview of woman’s role and place in western Europe, spanning the era from the beginning of the eighteenth century until the twentieth century. In this collection of essays, leading women's historians counter the notion of ‘national’ histories and provide the insight and perspective of a European approach. Important intellectual, political and economic developments have not respected national boundaries, nor has the story of women’s past, or the interplay of gender and culture. The interaction between women, ideology and female agency, the way women engaged with patriarchal and gendered structures and systems, and the way women carved out their identities and spaces within these, informs the writing in this book. For any student of women’s studies or European history, The Routledge History of Women in Europe since 1700 will prove an informative addition to their studies.

A team of subject specialists has taken on the immense task of documenting publications in the area of women's studies in the last decades of the 20th century. The result is this truly monumental work, which maps the field, covering thousands of titles and Web sites in 19 subject areas published between 1985 and 1999. Intended as a reference and collection development tool, this bibliography provides a guide to women's studies information for each title along with a detailed, often evaluative review. The annotations summarize each work's content, its importance or contribution to women's studies, and its relationship to other titles on the subject. Most reviews cite and describe similar and contrasting titles, substantially extending the coverage. Core titles and titles that are out of print are noted, and reviews indicate which titles are appropriate as texts or supplemental texts.

Women's Albums and Photography in Victorian England

This beautifully illustrated study recaptures the rich history of women photographers and image collectors in nineteenth-century England. Situating the practice of collecting, exchanging and displaying photographs and other images in the context of feminine sociability, Patrizia Di Bello shows that albums express Victorian women's experience of modernity. The albums of individual women, and the broader feminine culture of collecting and displaying imagesare examined, uncovering the cross-references and fertilizations between women's albums and illustrated periodicals, and demonstrating the way albums and photography, itself, were represented in women's magazines, fashion plates, and popular novels. Bringing a sophisticated eye to overlooked images such as the family photograph, Di Bello not only illustrates their significance as historical documents but elucidates the visual rhetorics at play. In doing so, she identifies the connections between Victorian album-making and the work of modern-day amateurs and artists who use digital techniques to compile and decorate albums with Victorian-style borders and patterns. At a time when photographic album-making is being re-vitalised by digital technologies, this book rewrites the history of photographic albums, placing the female collector at its centre and offering an alternative history of photography focused on its uses rather than on its aesthetic or artistic considerations. It is remarkable in elegantly connecting the history of photography with the fields of material culture and women's studies.
