The university was represented by the director of media and public relations, Dr. Kazem Omran with a research entitled (capitalism and war plays between America and Iraq) that dealt with the theme of wars that produced capitalism and other social movements leading communities to change their consciousness to express the facts and the psychological crises resulted from social events that caused ideological and philosophical impressions. Dr. Kazem Omran stated that literature and art in general and drama in particular are the first fields affected by the impressions of war since the writers become enthusiastic to reflect voluntary and involuntary responses, especially those happened in Europe and the rest of the world after world war I and II and the wars that followed. The research showed that Iraq was not immune from these global events that left its negative effects on the structure of the Iraqi society politically, economically and artistically and the role of the Iraqi man who was exhausted by wars that dominated his ambitions and ideas and became a barrier to achieve any significant progress. The research recommended to uncover the reality of wars, their woes and impact on human societies that fell under the geography of war. It is worth mentioning that (350) researches participated in this conference from different universities including the universities of Boston, Florida, Sydney, Harvard and others. The Iraqi participation won the admiration of those attendants especially Ms. Susan Darwin, responsible of conference proceedings for it is documenting the painful events of the Iraqi people and their sufferings caused by the reckless policies of the former regime and their effects on the present time.
