People create new opportunities and conditions in response to change, these responses are influenced by both gender and age. In "Gender, Agency and Change" the contributors illustrate the complexities involved in the constitution and performance of agency. Agency may be reflected in strategies of accommodation and adaptation that can nevertheless produce new institutional arrangements, or they may be directed towards the outright rejection of these processes. The cases examined in this volume explore the ways in which different subjects engage in the reformation of spaces, roles and identities, redefining the boundaries between and the content of the 'public' and the 'private'. The examples also provide an account of how gendered discourses are deployed to convey new meanings, a new sense of place and time or to confirm or challenge ideas of 'tradition' and 'modernity'.
