War Without Limits:
Spain 1936-1939 and Beyond

Group for War and Culture Studies

University of Bristol,
17th-19th July 2006

Profoundly Spanish in origin, yet almost immediately internationalised, the
Spanish Civil war had a marked impact on the politics and culture of many
nations. Considered by many of its generation as the first ideological war,
it has become for many since a precursor of the Second World War sometimes
subsumed into, or obscured by, this latter in our memory of the period.
Yet, its significance continues to be reflected in a variety of cultural
representations of the conflict emanating from many different nations and
cultures and in its continual pertinence and interest as a subject of
historical research.

The aim of this three-day, international conference is to explore the
international social, political, military and cultural history of this
conflict from 1936 to the present. The organisers therefore welcome
proposals for papers on any aspect of the conflict from established
scholars or postgraduates working in a range of disciplines including, for
example, social, political and cultural history, military history and war
studies, intellectual history, cultural memory, literary studies, art
history, photography, media studies, film studies. Proposals should not
exceed 350 words and should be sent, in English or in French, the two
official languages of GWACS, to either of the organisers at the addresses
below by the 31st December 2005.
