WGSS 49.06 Women and War in Modern Literature and Film

This course examines literary, artistic, and cinematic narratives about war created by women to reflect on the meaning of femininity and womanhood in times of armed conflict. Gender is a social construct and the gender binary seems to become profoundly entrenched during war. Some of the questions that will be explored are: how does violence perpetuated by instances of armed aggression overlap with the violence perpetuated by already existing power structures (such as patriarchy)? How does violence redefine our understanding of gender difference in general and the category of “woman” in specific?
