What happens when wars end? This course examines social experiences around violent conflict and its aftermath. How does the portrayal and memory of war shape future possibilities, whether in terms of social policy or ideas about civic inclusion? How does martial conflict shape social policies? We examine war and the social experiences of those adjacent to geopolitical conflict through the experiences of survivors, policy makers, soldiers and families, and international relief agencies. Our emphasis is in understanding the social implications of war. What are the social consequences of martial conflict? How is war represented to those not directly involved? How is war and its aftermath witnessed? How is its commemoration and remembrance constitutive for future action?
