Call For Papers - CFP

21 March 2020 - London, UK

organised by

London Centre for Interdisciplinary Research

The twentieth century, violent and brutal, offers a wide spectrum of material that deserves further analysis. The Great War introduced the first aspects of modern warfare; the Second World War, even more devastating in its atrocities, advanced war further. The Cold War introduced modern society to new methods and technological advancements of warfare, beyond anything our species had seen. The thirtieth anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall and the collapse of Iron Curtain in 1989 altered the balance of global power yet again. Global terrorist attacks and the introduction of electronic warfare have shown us that despite the painful experiences of the past, our world still relies on war and violence to address many of its problems in an endless geopolitical game.

Our conference wishes to explore the ways warfare has affected the political, cultural, social and economic realities in our quest to understand individual and national identity. We invite scholars from various fields including but not limited to philosophy, religion, theology, sociology, anthropology, history, literature, art, economics, geography, cultural and political studies to contribute to the discussion and explore topics within interdisciplinary war sudies.

Conference presentations will be related, but not limited, to:

Theorizing the war: types, roots, methods, strategies, theories

The finances of war and financing a war
