War in Words 

In this course we focus on how war is depicted in fictional and non-fictional media and therefore involves the use of a lot of visual, audio and print media input. We start by developing which themes are explored in the media and then analyze how that depiction varies from war to war and how our „consumption“ of such media affects how we then approach war.

Future War

The course is aimed at students who already have a fairly good command of English (SLP 4 or C1).

Bismarck said „fools learn by experience. I prefer to learn from others´ experience“. He was making the point that regular soldiers cannot regularly practice their profession since wars are, fortunately, infrequent. As a result, professional soldiers need to study war, to study why and how war is fought, and most importantly, to study how wars are started. That is what we are doing on the Future War course. We study the work of some of the world’s greatest military theorists and also examine earlier wars, using text, audio and film to identify causes of war – and extrapolate that forward to the future.  There is lots of hard work – lots of reading, writing and above all, thinking! But, as Suvorov said, „hard in training, easy in battle.“
