Matters of Conflict looks at the definitive invention of the twentieth century - industrialised war - and its vast and varied material legacy. From trench art and postcards through avant-garde art, museum collections and prosthetic limbs to battlefield landscapes, the book examines the First World War and its significance through the things it left behind. The contributions come from a multidisciplinary perspective, uniting previously compartmentalized disciplines such as anthropology, archaeology, cultural history, museology and art history in their focus on material culture. This innovative, hybrid approach investigates the 'social life' of objects in order to understand them as they move through time and space and intersect the lives of all who came in contact with them.
The resulting survey sets a new agenda for study of the First World War, and ultimately of all twentieth-century conflict.

Product Description:

This book looks at the vast and varied material legacy of the First World War. From trench art and postcards to prosthetic limbs, unexploded ordinance and war memorials, it examines the continuing and constantly changing significance of the conflict through the things it left behind. The diverse contributions span anthropology, archaeology, cultural history, museology and art history, bringing conceptual unity and coherence to a previously compartmentalized subject. Matters of Conflict sets a new agenda for the study of the First World War and ultimately of all twentieth-century conflict.

About the Author:

Nicholas J Saunders was formerly British Academy Senior Research Fellow investigating the anthropology of the First World War. He is currently Lecturer in Material Culture at the Department of Anthropology, University College London.
