Author: David Mayenburg
Publisher:
ISBN: 3465043332
Release Date: 2018-05
Genre: Law

Der Bauernkrieg von 1525 wurde bislang selten als Problem der Rechtsgeschichte wahrgenommen. Der Konflikt zwischen den Bauern und ihren Herren wird als politische Auseinandersetzung interpretiert, die in ihren 12 Artikeln formulierten Forderungen der Bauern gelten als religiose Utopie. Das Buch stellt diese Auffassung in Frage und geht der Rolle des Rechts im Kontext des Bauernkriegs aus verschiedenen Blickwinkeln nach: Lasst sich der Konflikt als Auseinandersetzung uber Rechtspositionen beschreiben? Wie nahmen die Bauern das Recht, wie das Recht die Bauern wahr? Welche Chancen und Risiken barg der Weg des Rechts fur eine dauerhafte Konfliktlosung? Eine exemplarische Betrachtung des Streits um die Frondienste belegt die zentrale Bedeutung des Rechts fur die Geschichte des Bauernkriegs.

Release Date: 2016-07-01
Genre: History

This book integrates women’s history and legal studies within the broader context of modern European history in the late nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Sixteen contributions from fourteen countries explore the ways in which the law contributes to the social construction of gender. They analyze questions of family law and international law and highlight the politics of gender in the legal professions in a variety of historical, social and national settings, including Eastern, Southern, Western, Northern and Central Europe. Focusing on different legal cultures, they show us the similarities and differences in the ways the law has shaped the contours of women and men’s lives in powerful ways. They also show how women have used legal knowledge to struggle for their equal rights on the national and transnational level. The chapters address the interconnectedness of the history of feminism, legislative reforms, and women’s citizenship, and build a foundation for a comparative vision of women’s legal history in modern Europe.

Gender Difference in European Legal Cultures

Author: Karin Gottschalk
Publisher: Franz Steiner Verlag Wiesbaden gmbh
ISBN: 3515094091
Release Date: 2013
Genre: Law

Law is a central element of social and political order - with it, power is institutionalized, actions are structured and sanctioned. Fundamental concepts of order are expressed and legitimised by law. This is especially true of gender difference. Until equal rights won out as the norm, differentiating legal capacities of persons by their gender meant assigning distinct forms of legally defined agency to men and women and fixing gender hierarchy. Nevertheless, even while formal equality is established throughout Europe since the 20th century, gender difference in law remains a precarious question. The present volume documents the fifth conference of the international research network Gender Difference in the History of European Legal Cultures.
