Commemorating War: Memorials and Society

​Kathe Kollwitz The Parents (War portfolio, plate 3) 1921-22 Private Collection​ 

​Join our panel discussion to examine how we remember war through commemorative sculpture

Exploring the debate over commemoration in the years after the First World War and today, the panel will consider how memorials reflect the social and political values of their time and assess their contemporary relevance in the centenary of the end of the war.

Join Emma Login, First World War Programme Manager at Historic England and Sam Edwards, Senior Lecturer and Programme Leader in the Department of History, Politics & Philosophy at Manchester Metropolitan University as they explore the politics of commemoration.
