Event description:

Works of art speak truths about war and conflict in a way that cannot be easily articulated by disciplines such as law or political science. As a result, scholars in these disciplines are increasingly paying attention to art made during conflict as well as the ‘work’ which art does in its aftermath. There is a need, however, to foster cross-disciplinary conversation about the methods and approaches undertaken by scholarship in this area. This two-day workshop is a series of events aimed at beginning a dialogue around these issues by PhD Candidates and Early Career Researchers. CALL FOR PAPERS AND PARTICIPANTS ‘Art and Conflict: Investigating Cross-Disciplinary Methodologies’ Workshop 25 – 26 June 2018 VCA and Melbourne Law School, University of Melbourne Works of art speak truths about war and conflict in a way that cannot be easily articulated by disciplines such as law or political science.
