A special issue of the Women's Studies Journal, including articles engaging in historical critique of women's experiences in the First World War, is to be published in June 2016.
The Women’s Studies Journal of Aotearoa/New Zealand’s special issue commemorating women and World War One provides a little balance to the otherwise masculine focus of much of New Zealand’s wartime narrative. Submissions speak to nursing history, venereal disease, the Anzac biscuit, the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom, and the sculptures of Helen Pollock. This special issue was generously supported with a grant from the Lottery Environment and Heritage, World War One Commemorative Fund. The Women’s Studies Journal is published twice yearly by the Women’s Studies Association (NZ)/Pae Akoranga Wāhine, and is available for viewing at www.wsanz.org.nz.
