Volume 4 (December 2018) is a themed issue on “Gender and Society” in which three authors explore the activism of Helen Taylor in 19th-century London, serialized novels aimed at immigrant Jewish women in early 20th-century New York, and the gender issues in academia and the resulting founding of NCIS in the late 20th century. This issue also contains three book reviews, an article selected from the TISQ archives by General Editor Shelby Shapiro, and a reprint of one of the 2017 Eisenstein Prize-winning essays.

Peer-reviewed articles:

Janet Smith. "She Fought for the People: Helen Taylor’s Work for the Advancement of Socialism and Feminism on the London School Board, 1876-85." 

Shelby Shapiro. "Another Guest at the Wedding, or Continuing Dilemmas: Problems of Acculturation in Three Yiddish Serialized Novels."

Susan Roth Breitzer. "Gender, Independent Scholarship, and the Origins of the National Coalition of Independent Scholars."
