War's effects are manifest in all branches of culture. Key themes include: the immediate destructive impact; the responses to the exigencies of a national situation and maintenance of morale; post-conflict outcomes which engage the re-writing of national narratives; the shaping of visual culture; suppression of minority or vanquished cultures with subsequent changes to collective and individual memories; the search for ways to express the traumas of a particular war and their articulation within the traditions of representing war in cultural forms. The variety of response has been vast and through many different artistic forms.
The conference will cover 2 half day sessions. As well as topic-based panels of papers, the programme will include keynote speakers, film screenings, and the launch of an e-catalogue to Nottingham's rare collection of TASS WW2 propaganda posters.
The conference will cover the period from WW1 to present day, and the different cultural forms.
