Introduction In November 2001, a small seminar was organized at the Jawaharlal Nehru University to discuss themes in histories of women and gender relations. It was sponsored by the Women's Studies Programme, JNU, and thejournal, Studies in History. Various schools in the University-the School of Social Sciences and the School of Modem Languages, in particular-participated with great interest and assured the organizers of the relevance of the effort. Long discussions with colleagues from the Centre for Historical Studies helped enormously in thinking through how best to integrate issues derived from the concerns of women's studies with historical methods and perspectives. The seminar was a local one, hence not representative of the entire range of historical work on gender issues. Moreover, not all the papers that were presented there have come into this number. Some of them will appear in the next issue, while a few new articles have been included in this volume. Hopefully, these would also be presented in the form of a book in the near future.
