book cover of Women Writing War

Together with Katharina von Hammerstein and Julie Shoults, Barbara Kosta has edited a collection of essays on Women Writing War: From German Colonialism to World War I, which addresses the question, "How have women experience and written about war? The centennial of World War I and renewed interest in the devastating German colonial conflicts inspire us to revisit both well-known and rare texts written by German-speaking women about these violent struggles. This interdisciplinary volume examines narratives of war beyond the arenas of combat and deepens our understanding of the gendered experience of war as it intersects with issues of race, class and nation."
