CNCS Conference: Conflict, Healing, and the Arts in the Long Nineteenth Century

27th May 2017, 09:00 to 18:00, Centre for Nineteenth Century Studies

This conference will investigate the ways in which the arts—materially, sonically, and aesthetically—promoted, transformed, and negated experiences of healing for soldiers, civilians, and communities between 1774 and 1918 across European Empires, the Americas, Asia, and Africa. We consider ‘healing’ in a broad sense, including both physical and psychological healing, occurring at personal and inter- and intra-cultural levels.

See the conference webpage for full information.

This conference is supported by Durham University’s Centre for Nineteenth-Century Studies, Centre for Visual Arts and Culture, Centre for Medical Humanities, and Centre for Death and Life Studies, along with the US-UK Fulbright Commission.
