Conflict Geographies: Spaces of War, Memory, and Resistance

Explores the spatialization of conflict and peace from perspectives within the humanities and social sciences. Examines claims on territory, resources, and homeland; traces the legacies of violence in memory landscapes both personal and public; considers the use of planning and architecture to build peace and enact conquest; and considers forms of survival in fleeing for refuge and standing in protest. Discusses how conflict geographies such as these provide insight into the various scales of power and resistance that shape how individuals live together.
