Abstract [en]

The author discusses the specific contribution of theory to the field of Swedish gender history, and especially in relation to one dominant paradigm coined by the historian Yvonne Hirdman in the early 1990s. Scholars working in this field frequently refer to the American historian Joan Scott, but almost exclusively as the author of the article "Gender: a useful category for historical analysis". It is suggested that this limited reading of Scott is symptomatic of a tendency towards protectionism and stagnation. In order to effect a change, the suggestion is that more recent works by Scott be included in the general reading, not only for historians of gender, but for historians in general, and likewise that the field of history should be more alert to critical theory.
