The military history of women is a field crying for definition. Military institutions have everywhere and always strongly influenced the course of history. Throughout history women have participated in these institutions, forming a normal and essential, if not always fully acknowledged, component of military infrastructure as integral elements in the organization of supply and maintenance. Although only in the 20th century have they joined the regular forces, women have always lived and worked in the world of camp and train. Barton C. Hacker and Margaret Vining, both of the Smithsonian Institution, are editing The Brill Companion to Women's Military History, to be published by the Leiden publisher Brill in about two years. They are seeking several articles on women's military history to illustrate various approaches to the subject. Of particular interest are proposals based on original research in pre-20th century Asian topics.
Please send a 1-page abstract plus a 1-page CV to Bart Hacker at We would like to hear from you as soon as possible but there is no fixed deadline.
