War on Screen

War on Screen

Series editors: Stacy Takacs and Tony Shaw

This series will publish original manuscripts addressing the representation of war and/or the military in popular movies, television shows, or video games. Books will be brief and written in a critical but accessible style, suitable for popular consumption or classroom use. Submissions may examine an important depiction of war or the military in a single film, television program, or video game, or they may analyze themes and trends across texts or media (e.g., the military musical; the staging of “combat” across media platforms; recruiting via screen media; World War I on film; war trauma and videogames). All submissions should combine analysis of specific media texts with contextual analyses of production and reception history.

Stacy Takacs is professor of American studies at Oklahoma State University.

Tony Shaw is professor of contemporary history at the University of Hertfordshire.
