Lecture by Jay Winter (Yale), Discussant: Ute Daniel (London/Brunswick) | DHI London

This lecture will address three themes: the place of the Great War in popular memory; the shift in historical treatments of the Great War from the political to the social and the cultural domain; and new transnational approaches to the history of the conflict.

Stille Professor of History at Yale, and is a specialist on the history of the First World War.
