Close Encounters in War Journal

American soldier. Naples 1943

The Close Encounters in War journal is a new independent and peer-reviewed journal aimed at studying war as a human experience, through interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary approaches. The journal studies how war affects the sphere of human relations, which can occur in a number of ways, through direct experience but also through indirect – intellectual – experience. When war is experienced indirectly, language becomes the medium through which people encounter war, for example through literature, journalism, politics or science. Close Encounters in War seeks to explore the condition, meaning and aftermath of both direct and indirect encounters with war and conflict. Here you can download the current issue of the journal.
