>Varieties of Experience: Views of the Two World Wars
>The study of narratives and representations of the two World Wars has long
>been a subject of considerable scholarly interest. Experience acquired over
>the course of a number of conferences and seminars in Caen (France) and
>elsewhere leads us to believe that a number of colleagues would welcome an
>extension of existing multi-disciplinary approaches to the subject as well
>as contributions on those areas of experience and theatres of war that are,
>perhaps, less often discussed in a Western European academic context.
>We propose to widen the debate by
>ď Formalizing comparative exchanges on World War 1 and World War 2 in
>subject areas such as propaganda, photography, art, poetry, fiction,
>journalism, life-writing, womenís experience, the home front, colonial
>involvement etc. There is also much to be done in the comparative study of
>the work of individuals who were actors/witnesses of both wars.
>ď Inviting wider comparisons in these areas by encouraging contributions
>from scholars working on the two Wars in theatres other than Northern France
>and Belgium and on perspectives brought to the Wars not only by Francophone
>and English-speaking writers and artists, but also by those of other
>cultures and nations involved in the conflicts. We would, for example,
>welcome the contributions of specialists working on the Far East, the Middle
>East, North Africa, the Balkans and Eastern and Southern Europe.
>ď Considering the manner in which belligerent and neutral governments
>presented the Wars. We would like to examine the publicís reaction to these
>presentations, the motivations of the people who give their lives to the
>cause of war and the way in which periods of tremendous human sacrifice are
>related after the conflict.
>Proposals, in English or in French (maximum one A4 page), should be sent,
>before 1st October 2007, to Claire Bowen ([log in to unmask]).
>Completed articles will be expected for 1st June 2008.
>Please follow the norms for presentation indicated on the LISA e-journal
>website (http://www.unicaen.fr/mrsh/lisa/presentGb.php?p=1) and include a
>short biography of the author.
