Conference “Burial of the Unknown Warrior: Military burials from Ancient to Modern” (Manchester, 6-7 November 2020)

Manchester Metropolitan University, Friday 6th- Saturday 7th November 2020

Death as a result of armed conflict is an historical constant, one that transcends all cultural and chronological barriers. However, the manner in which a society chooses to process its war dead is both culturally relative, and illuminating. This conference aims to commemorate the centenary of the burial of the Unknown Warrior at Westminster Abbey with a detailed, interdisciplinary discussion of a subject that is rarely broached in its entirety.

The conference will explore the practices, rituals, and ideologies surrounding the war dead from any historical period to invigorate a discussion on the cultural significance of their treatment. We therefore welcome offers of papers of any historical period and geographical focus, as well as papers from related disciplines such as archaeology and anthropology.

We would like to invite papers of 20 minutes from postgraduates, ECRs, and established scholars, working on any historical period, which might cover such topics as (but are not restricted to):

A title and 300 word abstract should be sent to Owen Rees at or Michala Hulme at by 31st January 2020. Postgraduate speakers and ECRs and warmly encouraged to submit a paper.
