The notion of gender, understood as the historical, social and cultural construction of sexual identity, has become a vital concept for research on texts produced by modern society and on the various values at stake in those texts. The collection Masculine/ Feminine in Modern Europe offers scientific works (studies and critical editions) undertaking to approach literature in this perspective, bringing historical light to contemporary questions: construction of sexual identity and relations between sexes, history of sexualities, study of gender as a field for construction of sexual identities; such are the various directions and perspectives opened for collective debate.
