Art & Science vs. Conflict in the global present
(20th and 21st Centuries)
How are Art & Science:
1) used as tools for historical memory/dignifying the dead/searching for the missing'?
2) helping us to begin thinking about conflict resolution?
3) empowering the search for justice and reconciliation?
Do artists often represent a vehicle towards conflict propaganda?
*To bring together artists, and academics interested and working in the artistic portrayal of different aspects of conflict, predominantly conflict related to war.
*To engage with current issues related to shock reaction, the culture of fear and anxiety, art engagement in the context of war, general responses to conflict and conflict resolution.
*To explore the reciprocal social, cultural and psychological aspects of arts and conflict in an attempt to understand the potential of art in coping with and transforming conflict in positive ways.
*To explore how art provides a tribute to the memory of the missing from conflict areas and how science contributes to Justice and Redress in postconflict societies.
