Call for journal articles for a special issue of War and Culture Studies on incarceration during the Second World War

3 June 2013


Call for papers

This special issue of the journal War and Culture (Vol. 7, No.3 August 2014) aims to examine the myriad ways that incarceration was experienced during the Second World War. Taking a broad definition of wartime imprisonment and seeking to cover a number of different countries and theatres of war, we welcome proposals on issues such as the internment of civilian enemy aliens, the captivity of captured enemy soldiers, the incarceration of concentration camp inmates and the detention of criminals on the home front. Preference may be given to proposals which examine artistic, filmic or literary representations of incarceration.
Please send expressions of interest to the co-editors Lucy Noakes, Juliette Pattinson and Wendy Ugolini:
