The War and Media Network was founded in 2003 in recognition of the global interest in the subject of War and Media as an important area of research and debate. The aim of the WAM Network is to establish productive dialogue between academics and practitioners interested in this area. The WAM Network now has over 350 international members from academia, and the defence, journalistic and artistic communities.
The WAM Network hosted an international conference in 2005 entitled ‘Communicating War’ and from which a book was produced (click here for more details) . In 2012 the network also established direct links with the major international journal ‘Media, War and Conflict’ that maps the shifting arena of war, conflict and terrorism in our intensively and extensively mediated age. Media, War & Conflict is the first journal to be dedicated to this field and you can read more about it here
