War and Peace: Quotidian Responses

Reading Group 3

Part of TORCH Critical-Thinking Communities

This event is free and all are welcome. 


There are no pre-readings for this session. The convenors will circulate copies of three short primary texts to facilitate discussion on and around the theme.

This is a small, cohesive, and welcoming reading group interested in foregrounding a serious and sophisticated critique of war by revisiting twentieth-century responses to the increasing civilianization of military conflict from the ‘global south’ and aimed at facilitating interdisciplinary conversations within the humanities.
