There are chapters on women in Gaelic culture, women's relationship to oral traditions and to key literary periods, women's engagements with nationalism, with space, with genre fiction and with the activity of reading.Key features* Includes innovative scholarship from leading critics of gender and Scottish Studies, including Sarah Dunnigan (Edinburgh), Carol Anderson (Open University), Pam Perkins (Manitoba), Florence Boos (Iowa)* Responds to current developments in the field of feminist and literary studies* Includes an authoritative introduction and a guide to further reading
