9th Jul 2014 (all day)
The British Academy, London.
British Academy Conference convened by Dr Lucy Noakes, University of Brighton, Dr Claudia Siebrecht and Dr Claire Langhamer, University of Sussex
Love, grief, hate and fear are among the emotions most immediately associated with the rhetoric, experience and memory of war. War is often lived through and remembered as a time of heightened emotional intensity during which patriotic fervour, the break-up of families, encounters with the enemy, loss of life, and extraordinary levels of violence engender a range of complex emotional responses.
This two-day conference seeks to explore the degree to which war impacted upon the emotional world of those who lived through times of conflict, and to consider how individuals in a range of different national contexts have responded to war from the medieval to the modern period.
