For a faculty seminar this fall, I need help in locating scholarship on women and work culture, particularly on women outside the United States.
I am familiar with the following works: Dorothy Sue Cobble Dishing It Out; Karen Sacks Caring By The Hour; Vicki Ruiz Cannery Women, Cannery Lives; Lisa Fine The Souls of the Skyscraper; Margery Davies Woman's Place is at the Typewriter; Barbara Melosh The Physician's Hand; and Sallie Westwood All Day, Every Day (British). I also know that there was an issue of Feminist Studies a few years ago on the topic and can locate that.
I am most interested in identifying historical works outside of U.S. history, articles as well as books. Thanks.
