Whereas the term 'home' is commonly associated with familiarity and safety, 'conflict' evokes the opposite sense. War often enters the home as quotidian lived experience; critics such as Mary A. Favret address the concept of 'wartime' as a distinct and culturally-constructed temporality. Conflict enforces migration; it creates Diasporas and exiles, in turn reorienting our imaginative perception of home.
‘Bringing Conflict Home’ aims to bridge past and present with a historical perspective as well as a contemporary one.
The Conference will take place in The Bowland Auditorium, located within the Berrick Saul Building between 9am and 6pm.
