Abstract

This article reports on the workshop where French and foreign researchers gathered to challenge the notion that warfare is an intrinsically masculine domain. Although warfare has often been conceived of as an essentially masculine sphere of human activity, recent studies reveal that women have been much more intimately involved in military activities in the past. Women’s historians have examined emergence of female soldiers in modern armies, demonstrating the important roles that women played in combat, in army hospitals, in military logistical services, and on the home front etc. Scholars here confront gender and war and reexamine gendered categories such as women in war, disciplined bodies, combat and gender, masculine honor, campaign communities, military masculinities, wartime labor, aggression and emotions, sexual culture, sexual violence, military prostitution, mass rape, and broken bodies.
