My department is discussing a possible two-term sequence on women and gender in world history, probably team-taught. We would benefit greatly from hearing from or about other history departments that have attempted something similar. What books or other sources were used (of course, I have Bonnie G. Smith's three-volume collection)? How was the course organized, in terms of temporality and breadth (e.g. to be genuinely "world history," not just "Western-plus")?

Registration now open: A Violent World?
Oxford University, 29 June – 1 July 2017
This conference brings global approaches to the history of violence, reassessing the nature of violence during the early modern period. Integrating warfare and other crucial forms of large-scale violence with recent scholarship on the history of collective and inter-personal violence, this three-day conference will probe historical assumptions about the limits of violence and its decline during the early modern period.
