War, wounding and intimacies
In war and its aftermath, new relationships are forged through acts of wounding and caring for the wounded and for the dead. This special issue[JJM(1] focusses on the injured and injuring body as the site at which emerge constellations of hostility and intimacy between, variously, combatants, other military and medical personnel, and civilians. The articles consider unexpected, previously undiscussed war intimacies across several major conflicts of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries in Europe and America. They draw upon a range of materials with an emphasis on visual and material culture, including photographs, sketches, objects, and private and public forms of commemoration, as well as on published and institutional records and on personal documents - letters, diaries, marginalia and annotations.
