The Memory Politics of the First World War at its Centenary

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


This chapter explores the presentation of the First World War as we move into its second century. The work discusses new frameworks of remembering at the centenary, in particular the opening up of the memory of this conflict to reflect a more inclusive practice. The chapter builds upon existing theories in cultural memory to assess the extent to which the legacy of the First World War, now that it only exists as post-lived memory, is able to be responsive, interactive, and retain relevance not despite but rather precisely because of its new fluid, evolving character.
