Analyzes and compares women's experiences with war and peace during the World Wars and early postwar periods. The course considers changes over time globally and locally in the gendered nature of warfare, and the history of women's participation in conflicts as members of armed forces, war resisters, displaced persons, and targets of violence. It also interrogates women's considerable involvement in peace movements and the feminist critique of militarism.[G}
