Traditional histories of war have focused overwhelmingly on masculine narratives of military action, diplomacy, and political maneuvering, leaving the “home front” and private, domestic life relatively unstudied. The papers in this panel look instead at relations between mothers and children, and the varied roles both have assumed during periods of armed conflict, asking how women coped during times of great uncertainty, navigating social boundaries, balancing national and familial commitments, and enduring the injury or even death of their children.
