“How could Digital Humanities have evaded us, the digital natives, after two decades of immersing ourselves in not only the humanities, but also technology?” puzzled students in the Undergraduate Manifesto on Digital Humanities.

While conventional wisdom has it that millennials firmly reside in personalized digital environments (music, entertainment, relationships, communication, education), they in fact often lack critical strategies to analyze digital knowledge creation and representation.

War experiences and legacies affect individual bodies and broader communities. War violates and traumatizes bodies as it simultaneously destroys and builds communities. War contributes different narratives about the body and communities in relation to conflict and violence. Our panel series explores themes that includes the forming and disciplining of bodies for war, the disfiguration of bodies during war, “disembodied” contemporary warfare, and the disappearances of the body during war. The body can carry the actual scars of violence and become a metaphor for the terrain of pain.
