Gender and War Project Utilizes Research Computing SUpport

Next year Oxford University Press will publish the Oxford Handbook on “Gender, War and the Western World since 1600.” Karen Hagemann, James G. Kenan Distinguished Professor of History and Adjunct Professor of the Curriculum in Peace, War and Defense at UNC-Chapel Hill, and three collaborators from other universities edited the the publication.

AnnualReport-HagemannITS Research Computing and the UNC Library worked with the Department of History and Hagemann on a companion project to that publication. That project, the Online Bibliography, Filmography and Webography on “Gender, War and the Western World since 1600,” collects and organizes secondary literature, women’s autobiographies, films and informative websites on the subject of gender and war to make them available to the broader public. Along with full-text searching, the project enables users to search bibliographical information through multiple entry points: author, publication date, collection, major wars, keywords or Oxford Handbook chapters. Furthermore, the website allows users to download full lists of included secondary literature, autobiographies, films and websites as RTF files.

“Without ITS Research Computing, the whole project would not have been possible.”

“Our project team of graduate and undergraduate students under leadership of a project coordinator and the project director greatly appreciates the collegial and fruitful work with ITS Research Computing, which was from the very beginning a strong supporter of the project idea,” said Hagemann, project director. “We want to bring the knowledge of an international team of 30 experts who work on the important subject of gender and war in the context of the Oxford handbook to a broader audience. Without ITS Research Computing, the whole project would not have been possible. They developed the website in close communication and cooperation with us, programmed Drupal in the way we need it for the project and supported the work of the project team. Many thanks!”
