The Peter Wall Institute for Advanced Studies at the University of British Columbia (UBC) provides opportunities for world-class scholars to explore innovative research questions in a vibrant, collegial milieu spanning all disciplines. Their programs draw together scholars from UBC and around the world to engage in deep and unconstrained research into some of the most profound questions and challenges facing humanity.
This collection of essays asks readers to think critically, creatively, and broadly about how, why, and when we remember, at a time when the idea of memory – through the commemoration of the First World War – is at the forefront of public discourse.
