Summary
"The aim of this volume is to bring together many of the leading and emerging international scholars of POW culture studies from a variety of different disciplines (including art history, archeology, music, theatre studies, anthropology, history, oral history, and museum studies) to understand the range of experiences of being a military or civilian prisoner of war during WWI and WWII ... This volume will argue for and highlight ... previously undervalued 'ephemera' (the material culture, artwork, musical scores, photographs, newspapers, and concert programmes) produced by POWs"--Introduction
