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
  • humanitarianism
  • 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.
