The 10th Anniversary Conference of the Media, War & Conflict journal took place in Florence on 22-23 May 2018, generously hosted at Accademia Europea di Firenze. The conference featured a keynote plenary on Women, Conflict and Journalism featuring Barbara Barnett, Linda Steiner, Daniella Peled and Dina Matar, a keynote by Andrew Hoskins, and a screening by Piotr Cieplak of his film The Faces We Lost.
The event was a great success, not least due to the wonderful setting -- and cuisine -- provided by Accademia Europea di Firenze. The papers presented represented a diverse, multi-disciplinary and growing field of research and many new friendships and collaborations were formed.
