Course Summary

COURSE OVERVIEW

The MA in War and Society is a truly unique course exploring seismic events that sparked violent change throughout the course of human history.

You will attempt to investigate what war means, and discover a meaningful definition. Analysed through multiple contexts including the political, social, cultural, technological, historical, military and media, you will learn how messages can be distorted in subtle and sophisticated ways.

This is a collaborative, interdisciplinary MA Degree programme that is harnessed by the breadth of research expertise in the College of Arts and Humanities.

Modules

This module is the companion module to HUPM03. It takes a pluri-disciplinary approach to understanding the impacts of war on society and vice-versa. The module evaluates the ways in which conflict changes and reshapes society and analyses the problems of war, its representations and its social outcomes. 'War' in thus not viewed solely in terms of military history, but rather through a broader context of changing social, economic and cultural trends both as a motor for change and as part of those broader changes.
