Conference: War and Culture Russia and Eastern Europe, University of Nottingham, 25-26 March 2013


Conference Announcement

WAR and CULTURE in Russia and Eastern Europe.

25-26 March 2013


Hosted by Russian and Slavonic Studies, University of Nottingham.
Funding from CRCEES and the Partridge Bequest


War's effects are manifest in all branches of culture. Key themes include: the immediate destructive impact; the responses to the exigencies of a national situation and maintenance of morale; post-conflict outcomes which engage the re-writing of national narratives; the shaping of visual culture; suppression of minority or vanquished cultures with subsequent changes to collective and individual memories; the search for ways to express the traumas of a particular war and their articulation within the traditions of representing war in cultural forms. The variety of response has been vast and through many different artistic forms.


CALL for PAPERS
The conference will cover 2 half day sessions. As well as topic-based panels of papers, the programme will include keynote speakers, film screenings, and the launch of an e-catalogue to Nottingham's rare collection of TASS WW2 propaganda posters.
15 minute papers are invited on topics which fit the conference theme and geographical area from WW1 to present day, and across the different cultural forms.
Scholars, postgraduate students, and independent researchers are invited to contribute. Abstracts (max 300 words) and a biography (50 words) should be sent to David Norris (david.norris@nottingham.ac.uk) by 31 December 2012. Authors of papers selected will be informed by 25 January 2013. There is some funding ( but regrettably limited) to support postgraduate attendance: please indicate if you need funding support.
16 November 2012.
