Summary/Abstract: In 2010-2011 Aspasia, the leading academic journal devoted to women’s and gender history of Central, Eastern and Southeastern Europe, published a dossier on the state of the art of women’s and gender studies in the post-Yugoslav countries. Besides the obvious differences, the contributions identify a series of common features running across the different national case studies: a clear delay in the development of women’s and gender studies, especially in respect of Western Europe and the Atlantic world; a limited institutionalisation of gender-sensible approaches in the historical studies; a limited presence of women in national academic spaces, and in particular in history, a discipline that remains an eminently men’s club.
