New edited collection: Ann Murray, ed., Constructing the Memory of War in Visual Culture since 1914: The Eye on War (Routledge, 2018)

This collection offers a transnational, interdisciplinary approach to the impact of war on visual media from the outbreak of World War I to the present, examining a diverse range of visual material which reflect the heterogeneity of experiences and perspectives that have characterised artistic responses to war in the past century. It aims to contribute in a meaningful manner to the growing discourse on the memorialisation of war in art by exploring works that have resulted from an environment of war and across a broad range of twentieth century conflicts. With a foreword by Dr Laura Brandon, CM, PhD, Adjunct Professor, former Historian, Art and War, Canadian War Museum, Adjunct Research Professor, Carleton University, Ottawa.
