The subject explores changes in the representation of war and conflict across different cultures and different genres of writing, film and art. Beginning with the epic poetry, the art and the religion of archaic Greece, it moves through a number of periods of European and non-European history, and a number of different genres, to ask questions about how narrative is built around war and conflict, about the different ways in which words and images construct stories, and about the cultural construction of gender.
Students must attend a minimum of nine tutorials, demonstrate familiarity with online resources and participate in the Faculty of Arts online learning community in order to qualify to have their written work assessed.
