Cultures of War and the Post-War
This Research Collaborative has two main objectives. The first is to define the role of scholars in the humanities in pursuing a rigorous theoretical, historical, and ethical account of modern war cultures across various disciplines. The second goal is to reflect on cultural policy outcomes that might address the profound social, economic and psychic challenges confronting contemporary citizens entering post-war societies. In the process of exploring these, the group will ponder questions of gender, technology and political economy. The group aims to contribute to the debate of cultures of war and to produce some concrete outcomes on post-war cultural policies which bridge the divides between academia, veterans, the military, activists, and creative artists in today’s challenging global climate.
