Post-War: Commemoration, Reconstruction, Reconciliation is a Mellon-Sawyer Seminar Series running in 2017-18 at the University of Oxford and Oxford Brookes University. It brings together academics from many different fields, politicians and leading figures from cultural policy and the charitable sector. They are joined by novelists, poets, artists and musicians whose work has marked war in some way. The Series is divided into three strands - Textual, Monumental, and Aural Commemoration - and is guided by three overarching questions: Who is commemoration for and why? How does commemoration lead to reconstruction and reconciliation? What is the future of commemoration?
