Our researchers study the literary and cultural responses to modern war, from the eighteenth century to the present day, in national and transnational frames, and often with national and international collaborators. We specialise in questions of remembrance, reconciliation and identity, the book history of modern war, the history of censorship, the role of journalism in modern conflict, as well as the cultural work of distinct genres such as the military memoir, the war novel and travel writing.
