UNIVERSITY OF OXFORD
23RD – 24TH MARCH 2018
Drawing together international researchers working in the humanities and medical sciences, this conference will explore the diverse effects of World War II on the perception and representation of the human body. Papers will examine the kinds of bodies that were enlisted, co-opted and represented during this period, on both the battlefield and the various “home fronts.” Challenging disciplinary and geographic boundaries, we aim to create dialogues between different fields and to intervene in current discussions concerning embodiment and disability studies, medical humanities, and writing the history of the wartime and postwar body.
Keynote speakers: Professor Laura Salisbury (University of Exeter) and Dr Rod Bailey (University of Oxford and Wellcome).
