2016 Talks

Living the Heritage of Conflict


Thursday, 17 March 2016


17.00 - 19.00


ERI, Digital Hub



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.
