Course Description

This course is particularly recommended for students of the Angewandte Studiengänge.

The aim of this course is twofold. First, we will focus on current feminist debates on gender, war and conflict, militarism and militarization, as well as the relationship between these concepts. We will trace and discuss the ways in which traditional approaches to and understanding of war and conflict are challenged and questioned, paying attention to women’s lives in particular. While exploring the theoretical, we will mainly rely on “feminist curiosity” that, as noted by Cynthia Enloe in Globalization and Militarism: Feminists Make the Link, is something which “involves exploring, questioning – refusing to take something for granted.” With gender as a tool of analysis, we will then go on to read the excerpts from the books and articles by such journalists/photographers and authors as, among others, Kim Barker (The Taliban Shuffle: Strange Days in Afghanistan and Pakistan), Kate Brooks (In the Light of Darkness: A Photographer’s Journey After 9/11), Marie Colvin (On the Front Line: The Collected Journalism of Marie Colvin), Lynsey Addario (It’s What I Do: A Photographer’s Life of Love and War), and Janine di Giovanni (Ghosts by Daylight: A Memoir of War and Love; The Morning They Came for Us: Dispatches from Syria; The Place at the End of the World). Not only will we learn about the individual gendered experiences of victims/survivors, but we will also explore personal accounts of the twenty-first century war realities as faced by women reporters themselves. Female agency, women’s activism, and gendered identities and subjectivities will therefore be the major focus of our analysis, which will be done within the framework of broader gender-related issues considered to be of international importance,
