Genesis is the journal of the Società Italiana delle Storiche (The Italian Association of Women Historians) since 2002. It is a refereed publication devoted to the international field of gender and women's history. Genesis does not privilege any historiographical approach, but aims at intersecting innovative perspectives providing a dynamic cross-section of writing and research in the field. Reflections on the past are closely connected to a keen attention towards the contemporary transnational political agenda. In its thematic section the journal spans across time and space, encouraging the overcoming of national boundaries and euro-centrism, in the framework of a multidisciplinary approach where history and the social sciences interact. It publishes articles in Italian, English, French and Spanish. Genesis is not an exclusively academic journal and targets a wide audience of readers.
