AbstractThis introduction lays out the key themes addressed in the Forum and emphasises the importance of understanding historical description and theory as mutually constitutive. The contributions to the Forum interrogate key categories of analysis in feminist history including the gender binary, gender crisis, agency and intersectionality. The articles show how the study of historical events and processes in their particular detail reframes the categories used to construct feminist theories of stability and disruption. The productive encounters between feminist history and feminist theory in this Forum offer new and interesting ways to reframe research questions.
