Films by Release Date

This site allows users to access the collection of films organized by release date. The collection includes selected movies, TV productions and documentaries on the themes of gender, military and war in the periods covered by the Oxford Handbook for Gender and War since 1600 edited by Karen Hagemann (General Editor), Stefan Dudink and Sonya Rose (Oxford and New York: Oxford University Press, 2018). Including films released between the 1920s and the present, the focus is on the wars of the twentieth century, because most movies relevant for the theme of gender, military and war focus on a conflict of this period. The filmography includes productions in English, French and German or films with English subtitles.
