Fall 2021 // Presented by the UT Humanities Center
What happens when the roar of battle and the clash of arms at last die down? The aftermath of any war presents problems and challenges of a different order than the imperative of victory during the conflict. This seminar brings a comparative humanistic approach to the entire problem of what happens after wars, which remains a crucial question in our own contemporary world. This is also a topic which is now being fully engaged in different fields of humanistic scholarship, from history to literary studies. We confront key questions about how the aftermath of war has been shaped at different times and in different places in the distant and more recent past.
