This initiative will bring together historians, war correspondents, members of the armed forces, and the public to examine and debate the media coverage of wars.
On Friday 9 and Sunday 11 November, the public will be invited to come along, listen to, and take part in debates about the representation of war through the media of film, photo, broadcast, and print journalism.
On Saturday 10 November, at a one day academic conference, international scholars will present papers on the works of famous World War 1 and World War 2 war correspondents.
The three day event will be complemented by an exhibition of documents and photos from the archive of the writer and war correspondent, Cornelius Ryan, who wrote three acclaimed books on World War 2. The books became international best sellers and two of them were turned into successful films.
