"What remains after war? In the World War era more than 120 million people died an untimely or violent death. The horrifying experience of mass death lingered on in cultural narratives for years. The cultural output repeated, re-inforced, or renegotiated peoples beliefs about war and suffering, turning trauma into something that could be situated within the conventions of public display. In 'War Remains' an interdisciplinary group of researchers offer an innovative approach, insisting on the importance of media forms for remembering and sensing war. They also point out how the conflicts of the past are indeed conflicts of the present: the impact of the world war era is resounding in the mediation of contemporary conflicts. The authors present analyses of different media such as literary fiction, newspapers, radio, film, comic books, and weekly magazines between the 1910s and the 1970s. They apply perspectives from history, human rights studies, media history, journalism, film studies, comparative literature, publishing studies, and rhetoric all arguing for a media history of war remains."--
