Mobilizing Cultural Identities in the First World War: History, Representation and Memory (Palgrave Macmillan, 2020) – edited by Federica G Pedriali and Cristina Savettieri.
Round table with the volume’s editors in conversation with Jay Winter (Yale), Marco Mondini (Padua) and Simona Storchi (Leicester).
Mobilisation during the First World War was a major process of material and imaginative engagement unfolding on a military, economic, political and cultural level. Existing identities were dramatically challenged and questioned by the whirl of discourses and representations involved. Taking an interdisciplinary approach, Mobilizing Cultural Identities in the First World War: History, Representations and Memory interrogates how cultural identities were mobilised by the war effort, one of the most challenging aspects of the history of the Great War, and one that keeps raising key questions on the way cultures respond to times of crisis.
