Gender and History calls for article abstracts for a special issue addressing ‘Gender and Global Warfare in the Twentieth Century’

Call for abstracts: Gender and History

Start Date Wednesday, 1 October 2014, 05:00 pm

Description

Submit an abstract for a Special issue of Gender and History Volume 28:3 (November 2016): Gender and Global Warfare in the Twentieth Century.

Although the occasion for this special issue is the centenary of the First World War, the journal is interested 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. 

The journal welcomes 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. They encourage potential contributors to consider larger questions of how gender analysis challenges or changes some of the categories that routinely inform war studies. 

The production of the special issue will follow a symposium, to be held at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities in late April or early May 2015 (date to be announced), whose participants will be
selected on the basis of the abstracts submitted.

Please submit 1-2 page abstracts in English (500-750 words maximum) to gendhist@umn.edu by October 1, 2014.
