Call for Papers - Annual Conference 2014: Arts, Peace and Conflict

War and Peace Studies Thursday 7 November 2013

The Annual Conference on ‘Arts, Peace and Conflict’ will be held on 2nd - 4th July, 2014.

This conference aims to examine the role of the arts in relation to conflict and peace from theoretical and practical perspectives. It aims to draw together participants from a wide variety of disciplinary backgrounds. This involves experts from a range of artistic fields. But equally, we would like to include experts whose primary fields might be in other disciplines. 

The keynote event will feature Irish playwright Frank McGuinness discussing the theme of ‘War and the Artist’.

Authors are invited to submit abstracts of up to 300 words or full panel abstracts (4 papers max) to tutu@hope.ac.uk  by Tuesday 7th January 2014. Contributions may also include performative ‘provocations’, demonstrations; or any other suitable format.

For more details, please see the Call for Papers - Annual Conference 2014.
