Women and the everyday realities of war

Call for contributions

Essay collection

Whether living through the British Civil War in the seventeenth century or the American Civil War in the nineteenth century or today's conflicts in the Middle East, women writers have historically chronicled their responses to war in ways that merge politics and domesticity. Despite vast differences in time and place, works like Jane Cavendish's manuscript writing (ca. 1640) shares with Hanan al-Shaykh's more recent evocations of war-torn Beirut a sense that women's acts of everyday resistance--making bread even when food supplies have been raided, for example--impact the way war works, on metaphoric, physical, political, and ideological levels.
