Battlefields of memory: places of war and remembrance in medieval and early modern England and Scotland

January 2014December 2016
ARC Discovery Grant

This project investigates how sites of war are negotiated and remembered. By analysing the battlefields of England and Scotland during the pivotal period 1250-1700, this project will show how places of war became important sites of remembrance and how remembrance of war became central to western national cultures. The project will establish significant advances in our understanding of how sites of violent conflict have become socially and politically meaningful.

Associate Professor Megan Cassidy-Welch is also a Chief Investigator on this ARC Discovery Project grant, which is administered by Monash University.
