About the book
Rewriting Citizenship by Dr. Susan Stanfield Assistant Professor of History, UTEP tells the story of how women in the early American Republic used print culture to define their role as citizens.
Dr. Stanfield uses cookbooks, novels, household manuals, magazines,newspapers and sermons to explore how women redefined the work they did in their domestic world as contributing to nation building.
By attaching a civic purpose to their household responsibilities, women claimed a place for themselves as citizens of the new Republic.
