Oxford Handbook “Gender, War and the Western World since 1600”

Research Question

The Oxford Handbook, covering the period from c. 1600 to the present, investigates how ideas and practices of gender differences contributed to the shaping of warfare and military culture and were at the same time transformed by them. While the main geographical focus is on Europe and the Americas, the book will include the long-term processes of colonization and empire-building and their global aftermath.

Project Description

The Oxford Handbook, covering the period from c. 1600 to the present, investigates how ideas and practices of gender differences contributed to the shaping of warfare and military culture and were at the same time transformed by them. It explores six major themes: the cultural representations of the military and war; the mobilization of the military and society for war and their postwar demobilization; the war experiences on the home and battle fronts; violence in war; war service and citizenship; and postwar cultures and war memories. While its main geographical focus is on Europe and the Americas, it includes the long-term processes of colonization and empire-building and their global aftermath, thus allowing for both temporal and regional comparisons and the exploration of transnational entanglements.
