Centre for the Cultural History of War
The Centre for the Cultural History of War is a research and teaching centre dedicated to understanding the cultural attributes and representation of war in the modern world.
About the Centre
Our distinctive focus is to consider three interlocking themes:
- population displacement
- collective memory
The Centre is located in a major research-led university, a short distance from the new Imperial War Museum North.
At the core of the Centre is a team of established and newly appointed academic staff who will co-ordinate and disseminate research both nationally and internationally.
We support a new generation of research students and postdoctoral fellows in this field. We offer an exciting new program in conjunction with IWMN and the Media Centre.
We've worked with the Manchester University Press to publish over 20 books related to the cultural history of modern war.
Our academic members of staff describe their recent research projects in their own words.
