Journal of War and Culture Studies. Themed Issue: The Spanish Civil War
Call for Papers Date:
The Journal of War and Culture Studies is planning a themed issue on the Spanish Civil War. Profoundly Spanish in origin, yet almost immediately internationalised, the Civil War had a marked impact on the politics and culture of many nations. Considered by many of its generation as the first ideological war, it has become for many since a precursor of the Second World War sometimes subsumed into, or obscured by, this latter in our memory of the period. Yet, its significance continues to be reflected in a variety of cultural representations of the conflict emanating from many different nations and cultures and in its continual pertinence and interest as a subject of historical research. This issue will seek to explore the impact of the Civil War upon the culture of those nations directly or indirectly involved in the conflict itself, examining the dynamic, shaping force that the war became for many artists, writers, and intellectuals throughout the world from 1936 to the present. The editors therefore welcome papers examining these aspects of the Civil War in both European and non-European representations of it.
Articles should be written in English and of 5 – 6000 words in length. They should be sent to Helena Scott (H.Scott@westminster.ac.uk) at the University of Westminster by the 1st May 2009. Articles should be submitted in accordance with Intellect’s guidelines to be found at http://www.intellectbooks.co.uk/auth/links/StyleGuide.pdf.
