New Online Conference: The Changing Face of War
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.

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?
Is all peace good peace?
The conference will include the following content:
