Nineteenth-Century Workshop 2018

War / After War: Memory, Fear, Indifference

Rutgers University; New Brunswick, NJ

October 4-5

War as memory.  The fear of war.  War as experience.  How does culture mark its relationship to organized violent conflict? 

In 2018, Rutgers’ Nineteenth Century Workshop will address the long-lasting effects of war on nineteenth-century literature and culture.  It is a topic we take to be both urgent and of particular scholarly interest to students of the era.

Subject Fields: 
Contemporary History, Geography, Law and Legal History, Political Science, Military History

Transitions from war to peace have been one of the most fertile grounds for contemporary historical analysis in the last twenty years. In this last year of the Great War centenary, the “end of the conflict” topic (as well as the possible or impossible “return” to peace) will be the discussion focus among specialists in the 1914-1918 period. However, the numerous forms of war-exit are difficult to understand through a short-term perspective.
