CSMCH Edinburgh Jay Winter on war, memory and silence (8/11/2019)


In this talk, Jay Winter (Yale) explores the role of silence in traumatic memory, with particular reference to World War One and its aftermath. He argues that silence has been underestimated as a form of memory in relation to war and other moments of extreme violence. The talk is followed by a short comment by Paul Leworthy (Edinburgh). This is a recording of an event hosted by the CSMCH and the Connecting Memories Research Initiative in November 2019.
