What is Strife?
Strife is a dual format publication comprised of Strife academic blog, as well as the peer-reviewed academic journal, Strife Journal, which is published biannually. Strife is led by doctoral and graduate researchers based in the Department of War Studies, King’s College London. Our contributors come from a wide range of backgrounds including graduate and doctoral researchers, staff and faculty at King’s, and leading experts from around the world.
Our thematic focus is ‘conflict’ in all shapes, forms and senses of the word. We combine political, historical, literary, and philosophical approaches to conflict (among other things) for our readers. We aim to provide thought-provoking, unique perspectives in all our work.
Ever since our foundation, in 2012, by a group of MA students, with the fundamental support of members of staff as well as PhD candidates, Strife has grown to reach a global audience. From the 8,000 annual views of 2012, Strife grew to reach 70,000 views in 2015 and 870,000 in 2017. As our 2018 Readers Survey shows, our audience is made by scholars, practitioners, and students from all around the world.
