The Digital Humanities Project “GWonline, the Bibliography, Filmography and Webography on Gender and War since 1600” : 

GWonline collects and organizes secondary literature, women’s autobiographies, films and informative websites on this subject to make them available to the public and demonstrate the scope of research on this important subject. Currently GWonline, which is updated regularly,  has  more than 8,600 entries  of publications, films and websites in English, French, German and Spanish.

Alongside full text searching, GWonline allows users to explore the collections of curated sources through multiple entry points: author or director, publication or release date, collection, major wars, countries and regions or keywords. The literature search is equipped with an OPEN URL feature that allows users world wide to check whether articles, books etc. are available in their local libraries. GWonline is connected to the forthcoming Oxford Handbook of Gender and War since 1600 (edited by Karen Hagemann, Stefan Dudink and Sonya O. Rose, Oxford University Press, 2019). It also  allows a literature search by Handbook chapters.

GWonline is a collaboration of the UNC Chapel Hill Department of History, the Curriculum in Peace, War and Defense, UNC ITS Research Computing and UNC Library and Information Technology. It is a non-for-profit project. More than 87,000 visitors used the website since it went public in April 2017.
