War in Human Societies: interdisciplinary perspectives

This event requires that you pre-register or buy tickets.

Description
Why do we wage war? Why has this self-destructive activity persisted throughout human history? And how has it affected our psyche, our culture, our actions? These questions continue to interest researchers in a wide number of fields, but interaction between disciplines is still limited. This workshop will offer a forum for postgraduate students to explore how interdisciplinary dialogue – humanities, natural sciences, social sciences – can enhance understanding of warfare. The keynote presentation will be a Biology-Classics collaboration on 'Women and Warfare' by Alberto Micheletti and Tommaso Spinelli, and there will be a presentation by guest speaker Leanne Simpson (Bangor University) on ‘Neurocognition of British soldiers during combat and post deployment’ as well as six presentations by PhD students on their research and two discussion sessions on the challenges and opportunities of interdisciplinary research.
