Cultures of War - Dr Ian Shields
This course focuses on the role that war has had in shaping nations, identity and the world order. It will review the role of media in conflict reporting and consider contemporary forms of conflict such as terrorism, and how they impact international politics. The theories of warfare and the rules governing its conduct will be critically examined and both contemporary and historic case studies will be reviewed.
