Memory and Mythology: Modern War and the Construction of Historical Memory , 1775 - 2000

Author: 

Starostina, Natalia; Editor

Credentials: 

Ph.D, D/History, Young Harris College

The volume provides a rare opportunity to launch a dialogue among historians working on the theme by examining different societies and chronological periods. It is often a case that the studies of the construction of memory of wars are geographically bound to specific countries. Such a focus narrows a historical inquiry to the experience of a single nation or a region and hinders a dialogue among historians.

Karolak, Magdalena

Credentials: 

Ph.D, University of Silesia (see Description)

This soon to be released monograph evaluates the role of the social media in strengthening and transforming religious identities in the aftermath of the Arab Spring. Focusing specifically on Bahrain, this study assesses how the sectarian interpretation of the protests exacerbated social divisions and reverberated around the Middle East intensifying sectarian loyalties.
