Women and War
0.5 Credit

Hours per week:
  • Lecture/Discussion: 3

This seminar offers a thematic overview of how war impacts women and how women impact war. It explores women as both agents and objects in national and international conflicts, portraying women as complex actors who are not only victims but also participants and enablers of state and non-state armed groups. Throughout the course we will examine if and how gender influences women’s roles as leaders, peacemakers and peacekeepers, soldiers, rebels, extremists, and war criminals.
