Visualising War

The University of St Andrews

How do war stories work? And what do they do to us? Join University of St Andrews historians Alice König and Nicolas Wiater as they explore how war and battle get presented in art, text, film and music. With the help of expert guests, they unpick war stories from all sorts of different periods and places. And they ask how the tales we tell and the pictures we paint of war influence us as individuals and shape the societies we live in.
