Honors Project


This project uses women's accounts—both written and oral—to examine women's experiences of war in twentieth-century Central, Eastern, and Southeastern Europe. Focusing on ways women construct their identities within their accounts, this analysis seeks to explore the role of ethnicity and nationalism in women's war experiences via autobiographical accounts. This project also examines women's bodily autonomy or lack thereof during wartime, including negotiating pregnancy and experiences of sexual violence, and how they depict these experiences. Throughout, this analysis considers how women speak about and remember their war experiences in twentieth-century Europe.
