2015 SHAPS Public lecture series: Conflict

Conflict series objective

The year 2015 marks the bicentenary of Napoleon’s historic defeat at Waterloo, as well as the tragic heroism of the ANZACs at Gallipoli. It is also a year marked, and marred, by ongoing conflicts such as the Ukraine crisis and the Islamic State/Daesh insurgency in the Middle East. Against this historical background, the School runs an engaging and exciting interdisciplinary lecture series, taking different approaches to the Conflict theme across the boundaries of space and time, from classical antiquity to present day, catering to an equally diverse audience of community enthusiasts, students and scholars, and aimed at engendering a stimulating debate around issues addressed.
