Subject: FW: Meicam conference finalised programme

We are pleased to announce the final programme for our conference,
'Constructions of Conflict: Transmitting Memories of the Past in European
Historiography, Literature and Media', hosted by the MEICAM (Modern
European Ideologies, Conflict and Memory) research group, Swansea
University, 10-12 September 2007.

Hosting over fifty papers and bringing together contributors from seventeen
countries, this interdisciplinary conference examines the many ways in
which the memories of social, political and military conflicts have been
transmitted within 20th and 21st-century European culture, and are shaped
by present-day political, economic and social parameters.

As part of the conference, a new journal, Journal of War and Culture
Studies, published by Intellect Books, will be launched.

For further information and registration details, see the conference
website: www.swan.ac.uk/meicam

Registration deadline: 31 July 2007
