Over the last decade discussions about gender perspectives on military history and the apparent absence of women from military history (especially from "battlefield studies") have taken place in several countries; most vividly in Great Britain
Consequently, the College and the Commission organise a public seminar on 27. March 2017 devoted to the topic Gender and Military History. The seminar consists of two parts: During the morning two English-speaking experts will address the issue from non-Danish perspectives, and during the afternoon a Danish-speaking panel will look specifically at Denmark.
