This Wellcome-funded interdisciplinary workshop explores the representations, manifestations, and legacies of war trauma. The workshop investigates how notions of war trauma have evolved throughout recent history and into modern warfare. The aim is to uncover how different disciplines have interpreted this challenging topic. Our participants include historians, literature scholars, security scholars, international relations theorists, policy makers, and journalists, inviting discussions that will promote new understandings and working partnerships for future collaborations.
