The School of Archaeological and Forensic Sciences at the University of Bradford is excited to host the first Modern Conflict Research Symposium, which will be held on Saturday 3rd February 2018.

The theme for the conference is Grave Matters .

The symposium is designed to showcase alternative approaches to the study of modern conflict from 1850 to present day and the human experience of war. We recognize the increasingly interdisciplinary nature of the study of warfare and so welcome submissions from any discipline, including (but not limited to):

Military History
Conflict Archaeology
Identification of Human Remains
Memorialisation
Battlefield Tourism & Contemporary Engagement
Material Culture
Anthropology
Social History
Peace Studies
Politics
Museum studies
Please send a 500 word abstract and a short biography to Sarah Ashbridge at s.i.ashbridge@Bradford.ac.uk by 12pm on Monday 16th October. We welcome alternative methods of presentation including posters, interactive sessions and any other ideas you have. Successful applicants will be notified before 1st November and the conference programme published Monday 13th November.

This event is funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council Heritage Consortium and is free of charge and open to the public. Please register here for tickets.
