We are pleased to announce we will be publishing a War Through Other Stuff-themed special issue in winter 2018/2019 with the journal Critical Military Studies. This special issue will consider how we understand the history and impact of conflict through research that distances itself from traditional military history.

At its most consuming conflict can permeate all aspects of society, but until now military history has dominated our understanding of conflict and its impact. In this volume, we will build on this developing field of creative and cultural approaches by showcasing emerging research which will provide a cross-disciplinary framework of analysis. There is a tangible benefit to drawing parallels across time and place to illustrate the universal impact of war and conflict on the human experience. As such, this volume will showcase research from a variety of conflicts or representations of conflicts, which no restraints on historical period or geographical location.

For the first time, we are bringing together papers in this area for publication.
