GOVT 85.38 Gender and War

Historically, the connection between gender and war was considered to be so obvious that few thought to question it. Men make up the vast majority of political decision makers who prosecute wars, and men constitute the vast majority of soldiers who fight wars. In the last few decades, scholars have asked why this is the case and challenged assumptions about how conceptions of masculinity and femininity matter in global conflict. In this seminar, we will delve into some of the classic studies and most influential research on gender and war in political science in order to understand the ways in which conceptions of gender difference shape the causes and consequences of war.
