Centre for the Study of Post-Conflict Cultures
Welcome to the Centre for the Study of Post-Conflict Cultures
The Centre for the Study of Post-Conflict Cultures, was established in 2004. At the Centre, we facilitate cutting-edge research into and debate on the interrelations between war, conflict, history, culture, gender and national identity.
Events. Our programme of events -interdisciplinary conferences and seminar series- provides an international forum for scholars and practitioners, working in areas as diverse as Media and Communications, History and Political Science, War Studies, Human Rights and International Law, Trauma and Psychiatric Medicine, Cultural Studies and Cultural Memory, Psychoanalysis and Gender Studies, Post-colonialism, Trauma, Migration and Diaspora, Comparative Literature and Literary and Critical Theory to come together and engage in debate on issues pertinent to post-conflict societies.
Publications. Our series of externally-refereed collections of essays on topics identified by the Centre is published by CCC Press. Contributors have participated in one of our invitation-only thematic conferences or been requested, by virtue of their expertise, to provide a specific chapter.
Postgraduate Study. In association with the Department of Culture, Film and Media, we contribute to a taught MA in Post-Conflict Cultures. This MA is open to students with a background in any related discipline: such as Cultural Studies, Media and Communications, English/American Studies/Modern Languages, History, Sociology, Geography, Law, Political Science. We also welcome applications from those interested in PhD work in Post-conflict Studies.
