Journal of War & Culture Studies

The Journal of War and Culture Studies is the academic journal created by the international scholarly association, the Group for War and Culture Studies. Interdisciplinary and international in scope, the Journal of War and Culture Studies emphasises cultural histories and cultural production as significant forces that have shaped experiences, representations and memories of war. It provides a forum for the analysis, discussion and dissemination of original research exploring the relationship between war and culture in the modern and contemporary era.

It seeks to foster genuine interdisciplinary dialogue through contributions from leading scholars and specialists in the field whilst also welcoming submissions from postgraduate students, independent scholars and early-career colleagues. The editors invite contributions in the fields of cultural history, literary studies, and all forms of visual studies that explore the areas of interest within its scope. Articles in related aspects of social sciences and social and political histories will also be welcomed if the focus on cultural production is clear.

•    The relationship between war and culture during conflict and its aftermath
