Time / Place


TIME / PLACE explores the political history of modern border conflicts through personal narratives. It is a book series as well as a digital archive designed to document subjective accounts of what war is like from the point of view of ordinary citizens.

Each book in the series focuses on one conflict. The first book of the series is TIME / PLACE: 1980-1988 Iran AND focuses on the Iran-Iraq War. The conflict is presented in three layers of depth: Facts, which builds a framework through timelines, maps, and data; Voices, personal stories from the war, annotated with relevant history, dates, and translations; and Landscapes, which uses photographs to document what the conflict really looks like on the ground.
