Volume 13, Issue 4 (2012) Gender and Political Transformation in Societies at War

This special themed issue “Gender and Political Transformation in Societies at War” of the Journal of International Women’s Studies derives from a symposium held in October 2006 at Colgate University (Hamilton, NY) which brought together feminist scholars whose research, writing and advocacy address this subject in various regions of the world. Dr. Jill Irvine and Dr. Maureen Hays-Mitchell, guest editors of this themed issue, gratefully acknowledge the financial, logistical and moral support of various actors for the symposium. At Colgate, we thank the Office of the Dean of the Faculty, Peace and Conflict Studies Program, Department of Geography, and Women’s Studies Program for their sponsorship of the symposium. We also thank the Women’s and Gender Studies Program at the University of Oklahoma for its support of the symposium.
