The editors invite abstracts for inclusion in a landmark edited collection on gender and heritage studies which will form part of the Routledge series Key Issues in Cultural Heritage (Series Editors: Professor William Logan and Professor Laurajane Smith).

This volume will advance the issue of gender within heritage studies by advocating a new, critical role for this field of enquiry. Drawing upon the wide array of interests and objectives that constitutes gender studies within the social sciences, contributors to the volume will illustrate how heritage can be analysed on the basis of e.g. masculinity studies, intersectionality, feminism, queer theory and sexuality studies.

The collection will serve to further the study of gender within heritage studies by positioning the construction of these identities as a global concern that shapes all forms of representations of the past. By offering an international perspective, the various social and cultural enactments of gender will highlight the significance of this field in forming a critical heritage studies.
