World War II: The Global, Human, and Ethical Dimension (FUP)

  • A lyrical, haunting reflection on what war demands of culture and what culture capitulates to in the face of war
  • An expansive, interdisciplinary project that draws on film, literary, and cultural studies, that nonetheless manages to remain free of academic jargon
  • In-depth readings of three well-known British films of the second world war that are not often studied as "war movies": Henry V, Brief Encounter, and The Life and Times of Colonel Blimp
