This transatlantic roundtable launches the publication of The Oxford Handbook of Gender, War, and the Western World since 1600 , a comprehensive historical overview of the entangled relationships between gender, war and military culture, and remembers one of its three editors, Sonya O. Rose (1935-2020), who died weeks before the book was published. The roundtable will focus on the intersection of gender, war and citizenship, which is not only one of the major themes of the Oxford Handbook, but also of Sonya Rose’s work.
