The First World War, 100 Years on: Transnational cultures of remembrance in interdisciplinary comparison
News from Nov 16, 2016
Workshop, Centre Marc Bloch Berlin, 8-9 December 2016
This international workshop will take the occasion of the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War to engage a team of Australian and European researchers from various disciplines (Film studies, History, Literary Studies and Digital Humanities) to analyse current discourses on remembrance in different national contexts and from different kinds of media (film, literature, internet). The distinct French, German, European and Australian/British remembrance cultures will be compared and related to each other in interdisciplinary dialogues between distinguished scholars and young researchers. The workshop will take place within the context of the project „The First World War, 100 Years on: Transnational cultures of remembrance in interdisciplinary comparison“, which is funded by the DAAD Australia-Germany Joint Research Cooperation Scheme, and in cooperation with the Centre Marc Bloch and the Australian Embassy in Berlin.
