Frontlines: Gender, Identity and War
School of Historical Studies, Monash University, Melbourne, Australia
12th - 13th July 2002

Keynote Speakers: Joanna Bourke, Joy Damousi & Stephen Garton

'Frontlines: Gender, Identity and War' is a multi-disciplinary
conference that will bring together researchers with an interest in the
social and cultural aspects of war. It will invite particularly an
exploration of the ways that national, cultural and personal identities
intersect at times of major upheaval. Discussions of migrant and
indigenous experiences of war will be encouraged as will papers that
take a comparative approach to the social and cultural aspects of
conflicts across time.

Organisers invite papers from all disciplines including the Humanities,
Law, Science, Medicine and Nursing. We welcome papers from postgraduate
students who wish to present their research in an international forum.

Sessions will include, but will not be restricted to, the following
* Literary representations of war
* War in film
* Indigenous experiences of war
* Outsiders at home: migrants and the war experience
* Women and War
* War and Masculinity
* War commemoration
* Shifting Boundaries - War, peace treaties and enforced national
* Clinical War - contagious diseases, army hospitals, psychoanalysis
and war neuroses
* War as Metaphor

All papers will be published on the web with the intention to publish a
selection of papers in an edited volume.
Speakers will be expected to give papers of 20 minutes with 10 minutes
question time.
Abstracts of no more than 200 words should be sent by 15th February
2002 to:

The Organising Committee,

School of Historical Studies,
Monash University,
Clayton 3800
