Interdisciplinary one day conference
Centre for European & International Studies Research, University of Portsmouth and the War and Media Network

War is fundamentally embodied, "the most radically embodying event in which human beings ever collectively participate" (Scarry, 1985: 71). War is enacted and experienced through the surveillance, classification, wounding, rape, mutilation, torture, death and display of human bodies. Diverse bodies are mobilized, disciplined, drilled, augmented, sacrificed, decorated, produced in war.  The history of war is one of corporeal destruction and reconstruction, from the conversion of civilian bodies for military service to the battle for hearts and minds.  The reality of war is not just politics by any other means, but politics incarnate.

The conference seeks to explore the embodied history of war as well as recent transformations in warfare. Through what practices, techniques and metaphors has war historically occupied various bodies?  From advanced warfighters to private military contractors, child soldiering to ethnic cleansing, is war assuming predatory new embodied formations?  To what extent is war deterritorialized and brought home through bodily practices such as militarized leisure and fashion, security and surveillant assemblages?  How do bodies bear witness to the histories and transformative power of war through representations of bodily violence and corporeal memorializations?

Recognizing the growing interest in the embodiment of human life and social action across the humanities and social sciences, War and the Body brings together international scholars and researchers from a variety of disciplinary backgrounds and perspectives who share a common thematic concern with the intertwining of war and the body. As such, it acknowledges the importance of the body as an increasingly productive site for rethinking and retooling the historical and sociological imaginations.
