Cultures of War and Conflict Resolution Research Network


The network is designed to relay any potentially relevant information concerning forthcoming conferences, publications, funding opportunities etc. to its members and was reunited in one place for the first time for its inaugural conference at the University of Wales Conference Centre, Gregynog Hall in mid-Wales, on October 13-15 October 2007.

The conference welcomed paper proposals on the areas below which were of particular (but not exclusive) interest in this first meeting of the group:

  • The Soldier Writer
  • Literatures of War
  • Military Conflict and Court Culture
  • Colonialism and Conquest
  • War and the writing of Nation
  • Scholarship and the study of Warfare

At the second meeting of the research network in Trinity College Dublin on March 1st 2008, particular emphasis was given to European depictions of warfare, knighthood and captivity in the Medieval period, and to Irish and Atlantic World conflict in the early modern period.
