This is a collaborative blog for researchers interested in all aspects of men’s and women’s work in early modern Europe. It brings together an international group of historians whose research places the relationship between gender and work at the centre of assessments of the early modern economy.




Our aim is to provide a space for historians to engage and exchange ideas on their work. It is a place to highlight current research, share information about sources and methodologies, pose problems with specific approaches and debate the grand narratives of gender and work. We hope to encourage a comparative perspective and to generate discussions that cross geographical boundaries.
