Next Meeting, Thursday 3rd May – Beatriz Pichel on Bodies and Masculinity in French Photography during the First World War

Just a short note to say that Beatriz Pichel, a research student form the University of Madrid who will shortly be leaving the department at QMUL, will be presenting on Thursday 3rd May, 5.30pm in G34.

Beatriz’s paper will examine photographic practice in France during WWI in order to enlighten the meanings associated with the notion “death at war”. Therefore, it explores both the images and the social and cultural uses of those photographs. In particular, this paper shows the importance that a notion of masculinity related to the military acquired in the representation of corpses, and the consequences of that in the consideration of the dead.
