War affects the whole of a society, yet we often only consider the impact on men in combat positions. This course will consider the roles of women in wartime across American history: as military personnel, nurses, camp followers, and civilians. We will also discuss how war affects our ideas of all types of gender construction. Military masculinity and military femininity are unique versions of gender that only exist in military contexts. We will explore how those ideas of gender are created and how they change over time.
Students will read selections from several current historical works. This course will have regular synchronous meetings where we will discuss the readings and the ideas drawn from them.
HIST 398 DL1 is synchronous distance education section.
