Primary Instructor:

Over the course of the six years of the Second World War, Europeans of all ages, backgrounds, regions, and sexes were gripped by the dangers, deprivations, and duties that accompanied a "total war." For European women, the experience of the war was as divergent as it was powerful, causing many to take up new roles and responsibilities on the homefront, and forcing millions to endure the horrors of aerial bombardment, occupation, and the Holocaust. This diversity of experience, the plethora of relevant primary and secondary historical sources, and the continued widespread fascination with the war held by both academic history and the general public, make women's wartime experiences an ideal subject through which to grapple with the writing of history.

This course will examine the history of European women in the Second World War, using a wide variety of material including scholarly writing, film, diaries and memoirs, and many other historical documents. A major objective of the course will be to help students acquire the skills associated with critical reading and academic writing, particularly through the semester-long writing project that will ask each student to evaluate a primary source produced by a wartime woman.
