Cultures of War Research Network

Supported by the Institute of Medieval and Early Modern Studies
Bangor-Aberystwyth &
the Centre for Medieval & Renaissance Studies, Trinity College Dublin.

This international research network was established in 2006 and it
brings together scholars, students and independent researchers who are
focusing upon aspects of warfare and their interests range
chronologically from the Middle Ages until the end of the seventeenth
century. The network is strongly interdisciplinary in composition and
welcomes new members with an interest in researching the implications of
cultural violence and diffusing their findings in an academic forum.

The network is designed to relay any potentially relevant information
concerning forthcoming conferences, publications, funding opportunities
etc. to its members and will be 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 welcomes paper proposals from early modernists and
medievalists and the areas below are of particular (but not exclusive)
interest in this first meeting of the group:

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

The submission deadline for papers is Friday June 15th. All enquiries
concerning this event and the network should be directed to Josh
Bradbury, the network administrator, at

With thanks

Andrew Hiscock
