The Imperial War Museum (London) and the University of Bristol are organising a conference on 

Materialities and Cultural Memory of twentieth Century Conflict.

Conflict and the Senses is the fifth in the series, and similarly covers the whole of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. It acknowledges the recent increase of interdisciplinary interest in the role of the senses in human experience and cultural representation (smell, touch, sound). As modern conflict invokes the extremes of human behaviour, its relationship with diverse and multivalent sensorial dimensions suggests itself to be of critical importance in our understanding of conflict in the recent past and the present.
