war and conflict.

conflict in art, fiction, film, television, video games, and new
* Relationships between war and science, medicine, and technology. 
* Everyday violence and gendered conflict. 
* Comedies of violence. 
* The manipulation of cultural phenomena and propaganda to create or
sustain genocide, ethnic cleansing, or racial violence.

and conflict. 
* The relative importance of cultural phenomena in the foreign
policies of ancient and modern societies.
