18:00 - PUBLIC LECTURE - The Experience of Combat: Terror and Trauma Website | More Information
A public lecture by Joanna Bourke, Professor of History, Birkbeck College and 2012 UWA Fred Alexander Fellow.

War is atrocious. In this this talk, Professor Joanna Bourke will explore the changing ways in which stories of murderous violence in wartime been told, reflecting on the terror and the trauma.

In conflicts from the First World War to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the “body as spectacle” has been central to politics. She will examine the politics of wartime killing and atrocity within so-called progressive societies, unpicking the ways that “our” acts of spectacular cruelty have been narrated. Furthermore, talk of terror, which has a long and familiar history, has become confused with talk of trauma. Finally, she will explore the problems of talking about the experience of meting out state-legitimatised violence in the immediate aftermath of war.
