My research is focussed on the relationship between the conduct of armed conflict and its mediation in visual culture in modern Europe. It spans the construction of national and gendered identities, witnessing and testimony, censorship, protest, trauma, and commemoration. I have also co-authored a programme preparing military cultural specialists for operational duties in Afghanistan and elsewhere.
