MAKING GENDER, MAKING WAR is a unique interdisciplinary collection of papers exploring the social construction of gender, war-making and peacekeeping. Norms of gender and war are embedded in institutions and have implications for practice. The book highlights the institutions and processes involved in the making of gender in terms of both men and women, both masculinity and femininity. The ‘war question for feminism’ marks a thematic red thread throughout; it is a call to students and scholars of feminism to take seriously and engage with the task of analyzing war. This book is a proposition that the war question for feminism is as much a challenge to what constitutes good feminist research in today’s globalized world as it could become a potential challenge to the construction of militarized. In altogether 15 chapters the authors analyze how war-making is intertwined with the making of gender in a diversity of rich empirical case studies. The book is organized around four themes. The first theme conceptualizes gender, violence and militarism, the second theme studies how the making of gender is connected to a (re)making of the nation through military practices while the third theme focus on UN SCR 1325 and gender mainstreaming in institutional practices and the final theme is on gender subjectivities in the organization of violence, exploring the notion of violent women and non-violent men.
