Remembering the war: 21st century commemorative projects
26 January 2016. The digitised Auckland University College Roll of Honour was the focus of a Winter Lecture by University of Auckland historian Dr Deborah Montgomerie.
In that lecture, which you can listen to below, Dr Montgomerie talks about the `commemorative impulse’ behind the flood of official and community-driven First World War centenary projects. She discusses how memorial practices have changed over time and notes that the Roll of Honour project reflects the contemporary emphasis on micro-histories that illuminate individual experiences of war. It also fits with international efforts to make archival sources digitally available for research.
