Event Description

In conjunction with the Imperial War Museum's major exhibition SHAPED BY WAR:  PHOTOGRAPHS BY DON McCULLIN, this conference seeks to explore the legacy of the Vietnam War and the resonances it still has for the coverage of conflict.

 

With Don McCullin, Philip Knightley and other guest speakers.

 

This conference is organised by the Imperial War Museum and the University of the Arts Photography and the Archive Research Centre (PARC) in support of IWM's major exhibition SHAPED BY WAR:  PHOTOGRAPHS BY DON McCULLIN.

 

We welcome proposals for 20 minute papers discussing the representation of the Vietnam War across the following areas:

 

  • Photography
  • Film & television
  • Written journalism
  • ‘Mythologizing’ the Vietnam War in cultural memory

 

Please send a 250 word abstract and one-page c.v. to Dr. Jennifer Pollard at considering.vietnam@arts.ac.uk by September 30th 2011. Notifications will take place by October 28th 2011.

 

A special issue of the journal Photography and Culture is planned in response to the conference, including selected papers from the event.
