Welcome to the Visualising War podcast! In our introductory episode, Dr. Alice König and Dr. Nicolas Wiater explain what their exciting multidisciplinary project is all about. They discuss what we can learn by exploring past and present habits of representing war - and why it is important to examine how war stories work and what they do to us. They talk about their aims for the podcast, the exciting guests they have lined up, and what they hope listeners will get out of it. As they explain, this podcast is for anyone who has ever been moved or horrified or fascinated or excited by a war story and wants to understand why. We hope you enjoy the episode!
