          resolution and post-conflict transition-is

          differently and develop different survival
          mechanisms.  The course  will also analyze

          gendered  and consider  how American women
          influence  they  way  in which  the United
          States  wages war. Theories  on gender and
          conflict  will be applied to concrete case
          studies.  The  main  requirement  of  this
          course  is a substantial  paper. Course is
          also listed as SOCY 397.
