    Perceptions and interpretations constituting the memory of the First World War vary substantially among European nations.

    France and Britain, for example, have seen in recent years a certain revival of the remembrance of the First World War, especially through the creation of sites of memory and the publication of new studies.

    In other countries, though, the First World War holds a less important role in the symbolic construction of the nation.

    In all cases the collective experience of the war constitutes part of the cultural tradition of each country and contributes to the construction of national memory.




    The aim of the Colloquium is to bring together the national historiographical approaches through the juxtaposition and comparative examination of multiple analyses and interpretations of the events of the First World War in the national traditions of European countries. There will be a focus on the analysis of various forms of interpretation and mediation, while some special ways of transmission of memory of the First World War in European societies, as well as the issue of the relations between memory and history in the various national traditions, will also be examined.
