Military History at UNSW Canberra leads the discipline nationally. We have a significant and growing international presence in the study of armed conflict and society from a historical perspective.
Culture, Literature & Media in War examines the literary and cultural responses to modern war, from the eighteenth century to the present day, in national and transnational frames and often with national and international collaborators.
Information Warfare & Influence investigates the historical dimensions of information warfare. We are interested in propaganda—in particular the mobilisation of print culture—in the conduct of modern war. We also pursue research into the politics of war commemoration, the histories of censorship and the production and circulation of war narratives in the literary marketplaces of the English-speaking world from the 18th century to the present.
Literature, Media & Cultures of Conflict at UNSW Canberra directly furthers public understanding of Australian and international literary and cultural heritage. Our prize-winning books reach general readerships, putting into the hands of the public new ways to access the forms of culture we all inherit.
