MWC Special Issue: World War 1 Centenary

The Media, War and Conflict Journal is hoping to mark the 100 years since the start of Word War 1 by publishing a themed issue of the journal in 2014.

We are particularly interested in offering an international perspective on the centenary and welcome contributions from beyond the UK and US and articles that reflect diverse national perspectives and topics related to World War 1.

Suggested topics include but are not limited to:

  • Mediations and re-mediations of World War 1
  • Remembering (and forgetting) Word War 1 (including official and non-official commemoration, mnemonic outputs, mediated memory, visible and invisible war practices)
  • Historical and contemporary analysis of Word War 1 (and relations to contemporary warfare) in, with and through media
  • Word War 1 through contemporary security lenses (space-time connectivity, risk and resilience in the early Twentieth Century)
  • Political and military responses to Word War 1 (then and now in, with and through media)
  • Representations and visualizations of Word War 1 (verbal, visual, abstract knowledge, art, traditional media coverage, digital media, cultural artefacts)
  • Post war, reconciliation and community building related to Word War 1
  • Ethical perspectives on representations and mediations of World War 1
  • Public responses to media representations of Word War 1

Articles should be between 5,000 to 7,000 words. All articles should be accompanied by an abstract of 150 words and up to 6 keywords. The journal uses the Harvard system of referencing with the author’s name and date in the text, and a full reference list in alphabetical order at the end of the article. All submissions will be peer reviewed.
