MESSIEURS BRETHREN. GENDER IN THE EARLY LABOUR MOVEMENT IN THE CZECH LANDS BEFORE 1848
This study deals with the role of gender in the early labour movement in the Czech Lands before 1848. It analyses the gender composition of collective labour protest, as well as discourse practices which helped to constitute the protesting body. Using this analysis, the study comes to the conclusion that the composition of early labour protests was exclusive in terms of gender and that the discourse practices, which constituted the protesting labour subject were the expression of the cultural representation of the newly emerging form of working class masculinity.
