Cultures of War and Liberation

What is the meaning and impact of War? And how can we understand the interdependencies of freedom, liberation and democracy? In past and present? This research group at Radboud University brings together experts, historians and literary scholars, from different fields. Our aim is to get a better understanding of the political, social and cultural impact of war and liberation through history, with the Second World as a particular point of interest.

Radboud University is located in a war-torn city near historical battle fields. It has a strong tradition in socio-cultural war research. By inviting scholars and students to elaborate on underlying themes, Cultures of War and Liberation (CoWaL) is looking for new and challenging perspectives on war and liberation in past and present.
