This issue will continue to devote attention to the ongoing public and academic commemoration of the centenary of the First World War in an attempt to explore the diversity of the war experience in its aesthetic and social representations and interpretations.

Proposals along the journal’s usual fields, disciplines and areas of research will also be accepted.

Please don't forget to include complete name, complete title (if the dissertation is in Portuguese, you can add a translation of the title), degree, university and date (you can add the name/s of the supervisor/s).

Being a peer-reviewed journal all contributions are sent out anonymously to experts for evaluation; it is therefore required that the author’s name, affiliation, and address should appear only on the cover sheet of the manuscript.
