Abstract :研究成果の概要(和文):本研究課題は、女性医師著述家による小説、健康指南書、性道徳論、女性論をジャンル横断的に検証し、19世紀の男性優位の医学の分野に参入し、女性の身体を医学的言説の「受け手」という位置から解放しようとした営為を考察した。女性医師たちの著作物には、同性の健康の守護者としての使命感と、時代の優生学思想への傾倒が見出される。女性の心身の健康が世紀転換期に特別な意味を帯びた結果である。彼女たちの書く行為には、自己の声と身体の回復が希求される一方で、性道徳規範の強化と母性神話の再創造という視座も存在し、女性性の修正は国家・帝国をめぐる政治的葛藤のなかに収斂されていくのである。研究成果の概要(英文):This research project explores body politics in late nineteenth-century England by focusing works written by female doctors and authors who entered into male-dominated domains. It examines their novels and manuals on health management and sexual morality, and analyses the contemporary debate between feminism and anti-feminism. The writing of the time indicates a strong sense of duty as guardians of women’s bodies, along with concerns for the degeneration of the race, stemming from oppression of women’s reproductive functions at the turn of the century. While the writings by female doctors and authors sought to demonstrate the significance of women’s physical-self-determination, they also contributed to the recreation of maternal myths and re-emphasised sexual morality. This set of debates in social and imaginative discourse posed an intricate question concerning the redefinition of womanhood, around which national and imperial political conflict revolved.
