New Forms: Remembrance


This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.


Since the beginning of the war in Afghanistan, new ways of remembering and honouring those killed in conflict have emerged from flag-draped coffins in Wootton Bassett and websites chequered with haunting images of young men and women, to rustic crosses erected in the Afghan desert.

Join Jane Furlong of IWM and Anthony King of Exeter University to look at how the ways we mourn and commemorate our war dead have changed since the First World War, and what these changes tell us about society and conflict today. Linked to the War Story project and display.
