Description

This course explores “the puzzle of gendered war roles” by introducing concepts such as: combat masculinities, women and/in war, biology and combat, heroines and heroes, war and rape, warfare and civilian life, and war memories, among others. We draw on legendary military conflicts taking place before the advent of modern weaponry, involving, for example, the Amazons and the samurai, as well as exemplary modern wars. We also consider the meanings of representations of wars and fighters in tales, films, anime and games, including “Princess Mononoke,” “Saving Private Ryan,” “Black Panther,” “Captain Marvel,” ”The Wings of Eagles,” and “the Combined Fleet Girls Collection (Kancolle).” Students will gain a broad perspective about warfare, and an understanding of interrelationships between war and gender.

Course Requirements:

Evaluation is based on class and section attendance/participation (30%), in-class activities (20%), two exams (15x2= 30%) and one paper (20%). (4 credits)

Class Format:

This is a lecture-based course with mandatory weekly discussion sections. Readings are posted on Canvas.
