Research project

Sexuality and Social Order: Marianne Weber on Religion and Modernity

This project focuses on the category of religion (and related concepts of domination, authority, and emancipation) in the work of Marianne Weber (1870-1954). It uses Weber's work to show that questions of gender were central to the political and cultural concerns that animated scholarly debates about religion and modernity in fin de si├Ęcle Germany.
