about this item
The industrialized nature of modern war in Twentieth-century is a unique cultural phenomenon. The last two decades have seen significant advances in our ability to conceptualize and understand the past. At the forefront of these developments has been a dramatic reassessment of the role of the senses in conflict. Modern Conflict and the Senses focuses on sensorial responses embodied in and provoked by the varied materialities of conflict and its aftermath and revitalizes our understandings of and investigations into the sensual worlds created by modern war.
