This article seeks to provoke reflection on the extent to which certain peoples’ lived experience of war is erased and elided in Western media culture, and the consequences for a reduction of intercultural awareness, empathy, and accountability. Reflecting particularly on the post-9/11 period, the article argues for the ethical imperative to question how knowledge of war is produced, and to do so as a critically reflective endeavour both within and across disciplines.
