Wiley-Blackwell is delighted to announce our next Exchanges Online Conference, entitled The Changing Face of War. Following on from the extraordinary success of our previous conference (Wellbeing: A Cure-All for the Social Sciences?), this exciting new conference again promises to set the benchmark for events within the social sciences and humanities communities.
As before, the conference is freeto all, and will take place online over the course of one week. The conference will bring together academics from the disciplines of history, policy, philosophy, peace studies, religious studies, sociology, politics, cultural studies and more.
The conference will cover the following thought-provoking themes:
Theory and Philosophy of War Is war an inevitable feature of human society/progress?
War in Cultural Context Is there a ‘Western Way of War’?
From Home Front to Front Line What can military history specialists learn from social and cultural historians, and vice versa?
Evolution of Warfare Are we witnessing ‘new’ kinds of war in the 21st century?
Peace Studies Is all peace good peace?
The conference will include the following content:
Videocast keynote addresses from leading figures in the field
Scholarly articles with expert commentary
Live Q&A with presenters
A book and journal ‘reading room’, plus a generous delegates’ discount
Many thanks to all those of you who have already registered for the upcoming Compass Interdisciplinary Virtual Conference. We’re very excited to see so many delegates from around the world and look forward to a truly global conversation during the conference.
The conference website will be completely free and open to all, but registrants will receive something extra; a Virtual Delegates Pack, which will include the full conference schedule, details of the discounts available on Wiley-Blackwell publications (as part of our book exhibit), our new Online Author’s Survival Guide and much more.
Judging by the feedback we’re receiving, many of you are looking forward to participating in this online conference, as travel to a face-to-face event would be much more difficult (and less ecologically friendly).
