"War in Society" Series of Events
"War in Society" is a series of events taking place this semester at Idaho State University that addresses the theme of war and its multi-faceted and complex relationship with society. The series includes an exhibition of drawings by a German artist of the World War II era at ISU's John B. Davis Gallery; a lecture by a visiting scholar whose research focuses on issues of gender in war; and a panel discussion with seven ISU faculty from different humanities disciplines considering the theme of war in society from their various disciplinary perspectives. Open to the university community and the public, these events are intended to stimulate and challenge the audience's perceptions and experiences of war and the many ways it bears upon their lives.
