CFP: Arts Special Issue: World War, Art, and Memory: 1914 to 1945
The two world wars of the first half of the twentieth century, World War I (1914–1918) and World War II (1939–1945), wrought extraordinary levels of destruction. Much of the artistic production during the period reflected grim and complicated realities, while a number of works of art of the post-war period played a role in the memorialization of the wars or served as critical commentary on the wars’ historical legacies. We are calling for article proposals that explore how art expressed the collective experience and memory of these two monumentally important global conflagrations and of conflicts that occurred in the interwar years.
