The Palgrave Handbook of Critical Menstruation Studies is now available. The first of its kind, it is an unmatched resource for researchers, policymakers, practitioners, and activist new to and already familiar with the field of menstrual health.
It invites the reader to explore menstruation from nearly every possible angle, including dimensions that you might not yet have considered: the historical, political, embodied, cultural, religious, social, health, economic, artistic, literary and many more. With 72 chapters on more than 1000 pages, the Handbook establishes Critical Menstruation Studies as a rich field of research.
The editors, Chris Bobel, Inga Winkler, Breanne Fahs, Katie Ann Hasson, Elizabeth Arveda Kissling, and Tomi-Ann Roberts together bring almost a century of expertise in studying menstruation. Over the last three years, they have sought out 134 contributors in more than 30 countries to address a wide range of menstrual matters in the Handbook.
