The conference aims to bring together researchers, academics, professionals and organisations that support war veterans within our society.
The ‘Research and the War Veteran’ conference is the first veteran led research conference that sets out to explore the cultural and social experiences of war veterans within society. It further aims to explore how war veterans are represented within the research discourse.
We are inviting the submissions of papers for this conference which might explore areas such as;
Mental health; the family; stereotypes; transitional difficulties; marginalisation; un/successful therapeutic interventions; inspirational stories; war veterans and the media and the representations of war veterans within popular culture.
You are not limited by these subject areas and we would welcome any research that would further the understanding of this group within society.
