Project description

MEMEX WWI - Recognition and resentment: experiences and memories of the Great War in Belgium



The first World War, with its unprecedented violence and unexpected duration, generated many complex and tragic experiences, which, over time have been interpreted and reinterpreted. The aims of this project are to bridge these two themes- experiences and memories of the war ~ in honor the Belgium's WWI heritage. This heritage will cover four axes: war time experience, heritage, literature and memory. In this interdisciplinary project, psychological, literary, political and historical approaches will complement one another.
