Workshop, Lecture and Conference Series: Gender, War, and the Western World 1650s-present

The planned series of events investigates how gender, an amalgam of ideals and practices that give meaning to and socially differentiate male and female, contributed to the shaping of warfare and military culture and was simultaneously transformed by them. It explores this subject by focusing on such themes as the cultural representations of military and war; the interconnections of the military and civil society; war violence and war experience on the home and battle fronts; the consequences of participation in war and the military for citizenship' the gendered process of (de)mobilization, post war cultures, and memories of war. Chronologically, the project covers the key periods of warfare development since 1950. While the main geographical focus is on Europe and the Americas, this history has to include the long-term processes of colonization and empire-building originating from sixteenth-century Europe and their aftermath in the Americas, Asia, Africa, and Australia.
