Summary

This programme integrates the study of history and politics to explore the forms and the legacies of war and violent conflict in the modern world. Students debate the primary causes of war; economic, political, ideological and structural. Students examine case studies including the World Wars of the 20th Century, the wars following the break up of Yugoslavia, as well as recent conflicts in the Middle East. Students link up the political structures and forms of government, with the ways in which violence develops and is resolved. They consider the ways that wars are experienced, represented and remembered by individuals and societies. Students undertake guided study visits to relevant museums and archives in the UK, such as the Imperial War Museum and mass observation, and participate in field trips to 1st and 2nd World War battlefields, museums and memorials, as well as the sites of more recent conflicts such as the Balkans. Students are expected to attend the relevant, regular research seminars organised by the Centre for Research In Memory, Narrative and Histories and by the Politics, Philosophy and Aesthetics, Research Seminar programme.
