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.  GWonline is connected to the forthcoming Oxford Handbook of Gender , War and th Western World since 1600 (edited by Karen Hagemann, Stefan Dudink and Sonya O. Rose, Oxford University Press, 2020). It also  allows a literature search by Handbook chapters.

Our newest addition, GWonline Learning & Teaching, provides students, high school teachers and college instructors with suggestions of selected material  (literature, websites with maps, timelines and primary sources, autobiographies, films) for the studying and teaching of seven major conflicts in modern global history. In addition, GWonline Learning & Teaching offers a Syllabus Collection for instructors.

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 190,000 visitors used the website since it went public in April 2017.
