This seminar by our colleague, Dr Xavier Guillaume, is the eighth in the History of Art Research Seminar Series 2015 - 2016.    

Based in the School of Social and Political Science at the University of Edinburgh, Xavier is a Lecturer in International Relations.

His approach to the international lies at the crossroads of many different ‘disciplines’ and approaches, ranging from sociology, critical social and political theory, postcolonial studies, history, security studies and citizenship studies.

His recent work has examined colour-use in military battlefield uniforms with reference to how imaginaries and practices of the battlefield have evolved.

His talk is entitled: ‘Paint it Black: Colours and the Social Meaning of the Battlefield’.
