DOCUMENT INFO
Description: Specifically, McTavish describes her interest in how men changed their position from one of interloper in the female domain of the childbirth chamber to one in which they became the midwifery practitioners of choice to wealthy town dwellers by the end of the eighteenth century in France. With a background in the art history of the French early modern period, and a long-standing interest in women's reproductive health history, McTavish critically examines all aspects of the treatises to discover what these portraits, diagrams, and texts meant to audiences at the time, drawing on the theories of literature, film, sociology, anthropology, gender, and women's studies to frame her work.
