In more than half a century, the nature and depiction of geopolitical conflicts have changed in technology, scale and character. The Cold War political landscape saw many struggles for liberation and national identity become proxy battlegrounds for the major powers. More recently, wars have been waged in the name of democracy, against terror, and in the interests of linguistically and theologically defined worlds. This volume seeks to demonstrate the ways that technologies of producing pictures and making war have shifted since the end of the Second World War through specific historical and contemporary examples. The processes of visualization and the methodological and epistemological approaches that can be brought to the analysis of the examples in this volume, will contribute to our understanding of the ways conflicts are pictured. The intention is to expand the field of enquiry beyond localized, thematic or media-specific approaches and to encourage new perspectives in the research of visual and material culture in periods of conflict.
