About the book:
O estudo de redes femininas históricas encontra-se ainda numa fase embrionária, particularmente no que diz respeito ao espaço lusófono. As contribuições aqui reunidas procuram preencher esta lacuna através de estudos de caso fundamentados em fontes por vezes inéditas assim como em documentos até agora nunca examinados sob a óptica da construção de redes e das questões de género. Elaborando uma variedade de propostas metodológicas, o presente volume oferece um panorama amplo das possibilidades de (re)pensar o papel desempenhado por mulheres na formação e na transformação de redes culturais.

Beyond the watershed?
Pre-1914 armed associations during the Great War, and in its aftermath
Armed associations were a common presence in pre-1914 Europe: thousands of male European citizens owned, handled, and used guns and rifles as members of various armed associations, from military youth groups and paramilitary units to civic militias, from company defence groups to shooting clubs. Handling guns was a means of instilling patriotic values in young men and preparing them to defend the country, but it was also a fully legitimized practice for preserving social hierarchies, order, and productivity. The outbreak of the First World War was a litmus test for the massive continental experience of armed associationism. On the one hand, such groups spent the years prior to the conflict preparing for war or preserving the social order against internal enemies; on the other hand, what they experienced once the war broke out was completely different from what they had expected. The paper’s aim is threefold. First, it offers a quick overview of armed associationism in pre-1914 Europe, outlining the various types, practices, and functions of armed associations. Second, it explores what happened to armed associations once the war broke out, highlighting transformations, adaptations, and disappointments. Third, it investigates the legacy of pre-war armed associationism in post-war Europe, in which a new kind of paramilitarism – much more violent and brutal – emerged and in which the threat of revolution seemed far more real. Despite the completely new context produced by the total conflict, through their endurance and legacy pre-1914 armed associations were able to overcome the watershed of the war experience and went on to influence post-1918 Europe.
