Comment une femme pouvait-elle s’affirmer et faire carrière dans le monde du spectacle entre 1650 et 1914 ? Dans une perspective interdisciplinaire, les quinze études réunies dans ce volume apportent des éléments de réponse à travers l’analyse de parcours d’autrices, de compositrices et de performeuses aux profils très variés, actives dans les domaines du théâtre, de la danse et de l’opéra. Ces études proposent une meilleure compréhension et contextualisation des obstacles et préjugés auxquels ces artistes ont dû faire face dans un milieu socio-professionnel majoritairement masculin, ainsi qu’une interprétation analytique des stratégies artistiques et discursives mises en place pour les surmonter. Il en ressort une approche renouvelée et une meilleure connaissance de notre matrimoine culturel.

The Second and Third Generation have become increasingly active in remembering and researching their families’ pasts, especially now that most refugees from National Socialism have passed away. How was lived experience mediated to them, and how have their own lives and identities been impacted by persecution and flight?
This volume offers a valuable insight into the personal experience of the Second Generation, as well as a perceptive analysis of film, art, and literature created by or about the subsequent generations. Recurring themes of silences, transferred trauma, postmemory, and “roots journeys" are explored, revealing the distance, connection, and collaboration between the generations.

Fredrika Bremer (1801–1865) reached out to the world beyond her native Sweden. Her promotion of women’s emancipation was celebrated and pursued by Sophie Adlersparre (1823–1895), Rosalie Olivecrona (1823–1898), and Alma Åkermark (1853–1933). From dreams to projects involving collaboration with Britain, France, and Germany, in translation, literature, and periodical editing, this book unearths exciting transnational connections that contributed to the awakening of the Nordic feminist movement. Shedding light on the circulation of liberal ideas, Marxist theory, and the Nordic debate, the three chapters of the book focus on cultural variation, constructive conflicts, mutual (mis)understandings, and class issues.
