Description

Much
of the scholarship on the Great War, and especially the Dardanelles/Canakkale
campaign, has been viewed through a narrow national prism and focused
exclusively on military aspects of the engagement. This new collection of
essays offers fresh perspectives from countries on both sides of the trenches
of Gallipoli. Examined here are intersections of art and memory and the role
that material culture and museums play in the representation and commemoration
of war. The ideas and writing draw on fiction, poetry and diaries, as well as
new digital media, which together frame the memory of war. Our ongoing
encounter with Gallipoli’s much-contested landscape takes on new hues and
reveals untold stories. Beyond Gallipoli
takes an innovative approach to the varied and controversial cultural legacies
of an event which continues to shape the identity of Australia, New Zealand and
Turkey.
