Living the Heritage of Conflict: Memory, Identity and Memorialisation
- European Research Institute (ERI) Digital Humanities Hub (G3 on campus map)
- Thursday 17 March 2016 (17:00-19:00)
War memorial research to date has almost exclusively focused on the creation and use of monuments by those with living memories of the events and individuals commemorated.
Dr Emma Login leads a panel discussion exploring the reframing of remembrance and memorialisation for citizens of a modern, innovative, twenty-first century global community.
The session will explore the topic from multiple perspectives to include historic and contemporary conflicts, and will bring together conflict academics with professionals from cultural and heritage organisations. The Digital Humanities Hub will also have images of memorials and conflict on their touch tables and screens which the audiences can engage with prior to the discussion.
Presented by Dr Emma Login in partnership with Digital Humanities Hub as part of Arts & Science Festival 2016, a week-long celebration of ideas, research and collaboration across campus. For details of the full programme, visit: www.birmingham.ac.uk/artsandsciencefestival
