IF-UCL collaboration: "In Place(s) of Memory"

UCL and the Institut Francais du Royaume-Uni have recently signed an agreement to collaborate on a series of workshops over a period of three years, focusing on research in the Humanities, to build on existing and explore new links between UCL and French academic and research organisations. The UCL European Institute is organising the first year of activity under this new scheme. Entitled "In Place(s) of Memory", the season has an interdisciplinary focus and particularly appropriate given the centenary of the beginning of World War I in 2014, aims to offer an intellectual platform for established scholars, early career academics and the wider public on history, memory, and commemoration.

This joint lecture features contributions from Prof Michael Berkowitz and Prof Delphine Bechtel.
