CFP: Gender & Global Warfare in the Twentieth Century

Journal: Gender & History
Editors: Louise Edwards, Martha Hanna, and Patricia M. E. Lorcin
Extended submission deadline for abstracts: October 31, 2014
Description: »Although the occasion for this special issue is the centenary of the First World War, we are nterested in contributions that provide a gendered analysis of modern warfare across the globe and throughout the twentieth century, as well as articles relating to the First World War era in particular. Scholarly contributions to the literature on gender and war are usually restricted to a specific war in a specific place, but the memory and trauma of past wars shape the politics, cultures and societies in post-war periods and create the basis on which future wars are waged, experienced or perceived. We welcome papers that consider these connections by exploring the gendered implications of global warfare, and also papers that connect the First World war era with subsequent wars. We encourage potential contributors to consider larger questions of how gender analysis challenges or changes some of the categories that routinely inform war studies. We invite work that falls under one or more of the following rubrics: gendering engagement and resistance, sexuality and violence, politics and culture, memory and trauma, health practices and medicine, and ideologies of war.«
