This conference is part of the Pembroke Center's four-year research initiative, Seeing War Differently: Rethinking the Subject(s) of Warfare. An exhibit curated by Ariella Azoulay, The Natural History of Rape, will be on display in Pembroke Hall during the conference.
The scholarship on modern war has broadened the scope of analysis from the battlefield to consider questions such as the relationship between civilian societies and their military engagements, practices of commemoration, modes of representation, global politics of security and humanitarianism, the value of human life, and the militarization of disease. This project also engages with critical discourses in such fields as gender studies, postcolonial studies, and the studies of race and ethnicity that have helped us rethink the "we" of the war experience.
