This panel will seek to examine the often-neglected role of women in the history of war and peace. My paper will focus on women in the Italian anti-Fascist
Resistance. I would welcome papers on topics such as women resistors during the Spanish Civil War, women in the French Resistance, women's autobiographical
writings during the two world wars, and women's peace conferences after World War II. One theme might be, to borrow an idea from Mirna Cicioni, how what we
know about the participation of women changes what we know about war and resistance as a whole. Depending on the response I receive, I might expand this focus to a more comparative study of women, war, and resistance that includes areas outside of Europe.
Panelists and commentators welcome.
