Online talk on new postdoctoral research project about nationalist memory politics

Presentation of a new postdoctoral research project Gloria Victis: Monuments to Lost Causes from the 19th Century to Today by Nicholas Parkinson on 24 September from 13.00-16.00

2020.09.18 | Jacco Visser

This research project addresses the challenge that nationalist memory politics has posed to European and American societies in recent history by studying the construction of Gloria Victis monuments (Latin for “Glory to the Defeated”). Rooted in 19th-century nationalist historiography, Gloria Victis monuments were erected to venerate Lost Causes such as failed revolutions and ceded territories, and can be found in countries including Serbia, Denmark, France, Romania, Poland, South Africa, Hungary, and the USA.
