Lecture 18 - Sites of Memory, Sites of Mourning (Guest Lecture by Jay Winters)

This video was recorded at HIST 202 - European Civilization, 1648-1945. As a result of World War I, Europe had a different understanding of war in the twentieth century than the United States. One of the most important ways in which the First World War was experienced on the continent and in Britain was through commemoration. By means of both mass-media technologies and older memorial forms, sites of memory offered opportunities for personal as well as political reconciliation with the unprecedented consequences of the war. The influence of these sites is still felt today, in a united Europe, as the importance of armies has diminished in favor of social welfare programs. Reading assignment: Winter, Jay. Sites of Memory, Sites of Mourning: The Great War in European Cultural History
