About the Filmography on “Gender, War and the Western Word since 1600

This project grew out of compiling a bibliography of scholarship dealing with gender, war, and culture in the Western world from 1600 to the present. In the past century (and longer), however, some of the best exploration of those topics have been done in visual form, as documentaries, feature films, on television, just to name a few formats. With that in mind, the contributors and assistants to the Handbook have put together a set of lists of what they consider the best films associated with the wars explored in the handbook. Educators and students looking for visual material for the class room as well as movie buffs will find this selected list useful.
