Long abstract:

This panel explores the diversity of contested legacies of modern conflict - from global wars to local civil unrest. Modern conflicts create as well as destroy, and it is the extraordinary range of multi-vocal aftermaths that concerns us here. Papers are invited that deal with any archaeological/anthropological aspect of this topic, from landscapes to objects, from the ethics of investigation to media representation, from political influence to public attitudes and reception, and from changing museum engagements to heritage and tourism.
