Cultural Contestation, Visual Culture and Ethnic Conflict in the Contemporary World

To examine the dynamics of culture and conflict, we need to consider the narratives, metaphors and visual representations that frame a group’s worldviews in general and understanding of specific conflict events in particular. Group narratives and a society’s symbolic landscape vary in terms of their inclusivity/exclusivity and serve multiple functions in conflict as reflectors, exacerbaters or inhibitors and causes of conflict.
