Intellectuals and War from Verdun to Bagdad
14-15 October 2005

“Virtual wars are conflicts in which one can kill others without either witnessing their deaths or having to take moral responsibility for them,” wrote Hanif Kureishi recently in The Guardian.

Throughout the twentieth century and into the twenty-first, through two world wars, colonial wars, civil wars, regional conflicts, post-colonial wars and up to the latest aggression against Iraq, intellectuals have participated in, observed and responded to war.

This international conference, organised by the Group for War and Culture Studies (University of Westminster) seeks to explore the effects of war on the theory and practice of intellectuals, and the impact of intellectuals’ interventions on our perceptions of war and the conduct of war.
